Estonia 2016: 100 anniversary of Paul Keres design contest

I'm disappointed to see that they didn't use the 3D technique I was talking about. ;) Luxembourg uses it effectively for its badly 'designed' coins, why can't Estonia do the same? And since Royal Dutch Mint which produces euro coins for Luxembourg in this fashion, could have easily done this for Estonia too (Estonian euro coins are struck by Dutch mint)

The design competition was open, and I think most people wouldn't go for a rubbish 3D design, as you can't put it on paper.

It may have to do with the fact that the 2 euro is a relatively small coin, on which details get lost easily.
