Slovakia Euro Pattern Design Concept
The designs for the Slovak Republic proposed euro coinage feature an architectural theme. The pattern 5 euro - minted by the official Slovakia State Mint in Kremnica - and the 2 and 1 euro bear an image of the National Theatre in Bratislava.
The capital city, which straddles the Danube River has a large number of museums, galleries and other fine buildings.
The small town of Levoca is represented on the Slovak pattern 50 cent, 20 cent and 10 cent. Levoca town hall, originally Gothic, received a Renaissance facelift in the mid-16th century and it remains one of the town's more remarkable features.
The designs for the Slovakia copper 5 cent, 2 cent and 1 cent coins feature an old statue from the Kluch Palace, Nitra. Nitra is the oldest documented settlement in Slovakia and it dates to the early part of the 9th century AD.
It has grown into Slovakia's third largest city, but the surviving old part of the town is a fascinating area, bristling with historic sites.
All the Slovak patterns have an obverse design of the 12 stars of Europe together with the date 2004 and the words SLOVENSKA REPUBLIKA.
