front side of the banknote

The design of the front side of the new Slowak 50 Sk banknote is dedicated to the memory of St. Cyril and St. Method, the first Slav missionaries.

back side of the banknote

The motif on the back side of the banknote illustrates two hands, with the first seven letters of the old Slavonic alphabet “Hlaholika” between them, as a symbol of the gift the two saints brought to the ancient Slavs. The symmetrically reversed silhouette of the medieval church at Drazovce (District of Nitra) symbolizes the dawn of Christianity in our country.
