  • Description of the coin

    The national side of the coin depicts a left-profile portrait of Alexander Dubček, a leading Slovak politician whose attempt to introduce liberal reforms in Czechoslovakia in 1968 became known as the Prague Spring. Inscribed along the left edge of the coin’s inner circle is the name of the issuing country “SLOVENSKO”. Overlying the lower part of the portrait is the name “Alexander Dubček”, first name above surname, and below it are the dates of his birth “1921” and death “1992”, one above the other. At the right edge is the year of issuance “2021”, and below it is the mint mark of the Kremnica Mint (Mincovňa Kremnica), consisting of the letters “MK”’ placed between two dies. Next to the bottom right edge are the stylised initials “BR”, referring to the national side’s designer Branislav Ronai. The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union.
