Slovakia Euro Coins

What do the Slovakia Euro coins look like?

The Euro is the only official currency in 12 countries out of 25 members of the European Union as of 1 January 2002. The banknotes (500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5€) look all the same in all countries.

One side of the coins (2 and 1€ as well as 50, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 cent) is also identical for the whole eurozone. The other side is, however, different for each country. Therefore it is possible to identify where the money comes from.

Slovak Republic is a member of the European Union since May 2004, but it is not the member of the European Monetary Union and therefore still uses its own currency, Slovak Koruna.

Slovak Republic will probably adopt Euro as its official currency in the range of years 2007-2010. It will then have to propose its own design of all eight Euro coins. Although there already have been some discussions and even some proposals, there is no official Slovak Euro coin yet.
