2019 Collector Coin Issue Programme

100 Years Dail Coin - 100 Euro Coin

On behalf of the Minister for Finance, the Central Bank will issue a €100 Gold Proof Coin to mark 100 Years of Dáil Éireann.

The first meeting of Dáil Éireann was held in 1919 and it was the beginning of a long journey of law-making and politics that shaped our country into the progressive democracy it is today. Governance of our new nation began on 21 January and was conducted in the Irish language to mark the symbolic nature of the meeting. The coin design depicts the meeting place that was the Round Room of the Mansion House. Its large rotunda arcs above the vast congregation assembled at that inaugural meeting and the words “An Chéad Dáil, 1919” are scribed in a traditional uncial font.
