  • Description of the coin

    The upper right half of the national side design depicts a representation of the concept of digital humanism: printed circuits in the shape of a human brain, in the centre of which is a circle representing a microprocessor. The Slovak coat of arms is placed next to the lower right edge. Inscribed inside a square outline that partly overlaps the main image are the words ‘20. VÝROČIE’ and ‘VSTUP SR DO OECD’ (the 20th anniversary of Slovakia’s accession to the OECD). Below the square is the name of the issuing country ‘SLOVENSKO’ and the year of issuance ‘2020’, one above the other. Between the square and the left edge of the design is the mint mark of the Kremnica Mint (Mincovňa Kremnica), consisting of the letters ‘MK’ placed between two dies. Below the mint mark are the stylised letters ‘PV’ referring to the designer Peter Valach. The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union.
