Slovakia €2CC 2011 - 20 Years of Visegrad Cooperation


Few weeks ago we announced that theme for the €2 Commemorative Coin that Slovakia is planning to issue in 2011 will be 1150th death anniversary of Prince Pribina of Nitra. However, the Narodna Banka Slovenska just informed that the theme has been changed and now it will commemorate the 20th anniversary of Visegrad cooperation.

Instead a gold collectors´ coin with the nominal value of EUR 100 will remember the anniversary of death of the Prince Pribina.

"perhaps by showing a map of the Visegrad and for example the Slovakian euro would highlight (embosse) Slovakia, Poland highlights Poland"
Yes, this is very good idea. I had similar when I thought about some future Czecho-Slovakian coin symbolising for example 100th anniversary of foundation of Czechoslovak Republic (1918). Slovak coin would have shown Slovak part (of course, without borders with Czech part and Subcarpathian Rus) in the center, and Czech coin Czech part. And if you placed one coin next to the second one, final image would be same as map of Czechoslovakia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:First_Czechoslovak_Republic.SVG).... Just my ideas. :)
Sorry my Engrish. :D

Yes true!
if all these countries were all in the euro area it would have been nice if they issue a common coin between them!
perhaps by showing a map of the Visegrad and for example the Slovakian euro would highlight (embosse) Slovakia, Poland highlights Poland ....

even if the euro is not yet adopted in those countries by 2011 they can still adopt this idea

That is a great information! I knew that 1150th death anniversary of Pribina isn't very appropriate event for €2 commemorative coin. Vysegrad Four is definitely better choice since it is quite important organisation for Hungary, Poland, Czechia and Slovakia. Probably none of three other states will have adopted euro in 2011, so Slovakia will represent all four countries by force of this euro coin.
