Slovakia Euro Coins

1 Euro = ? Slovak koruna

Slovak euro coins feature three separate designs for the three series of coins. Slovakia plans to adopt the euro as its official currency on 1 January 2009.

Slovakia has been a member of the European Union since May 2004, and is a member of the European Economic and Monetary Union but has not completed the third stage of the EMU and therefore still uses its own currency, the Slovak koruna.

An official public contest for Slovak euro coin designs was held, which took place over two rounds. The deadline for the first round was 31 January 2005, after which the ten top designers chosen by the National Bank of Slovakia were invited to make plaster reliefs of their designs. In the second round, the National Bank of Slovakia called a public vote to be conducted from 12 November until 20 November 2005 on the ten designs that were picked from the over 200 submissions. On 21 November, the results were made public; the most popular design was the Coat of arms of Slovakia. On 20 December 2005, the design for the Slovak euro coins was officially made public on the National Bank's website.
