What do the Slovak banknotes and coins look like?

After the split of Czechoslovakia in 1993, the National Bank of Slovakia has introduced new banknotes and coins in 1993. Now Slovakia uses Euro currency.

All images of coins and banknotes have been scaled to the same size. In reality the size of the banknotes increases with the face value.
