The Ten-Day War or the Slovenian Independence War was a civil war in Yugoslavia that followed the Slovenian declaration of independence on 25 June 1991. It was fought between the Slovenian Territorial Defence and the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA) in 1991, after Slovenia declared its independence.

It lasted from 27 June 1991 until 7 July 1991, when the Brijuni Accords were signed. It was a brief armed conflict because the Yugoslav army (JNA) did not want to waste resources on this campaign as it was preparing for the Croatian War of Independence, where the Serb majority had territorial claim, unlike Slovenia which was considered "ethnically homogeneous".

 

The coin design includes a diagonal line from the top left to the bottom center.

On the top right are the inscriptions "25 LET" and "REPUBLIKA SLOVENIJA". Among them is "docákat 'dan," an excerpt from the hymn of Slovenia "Zdravljica". The year "2016" appears at the bottom edge of the coin. It marked the beginning of the Yugoslav Wars.
