THE CENTRAL Slovak mint in Kremnica is making special commemorative coins for the Bush-Putin summit. The coins are made of silver and plated with 24-karat gold.
Summit guests will receive a gilded medal of 60 millimetres in diameter, the TASR news agency reported.
The mint's marketing director, Jaroslav Šetnický, said that the coins would be on sale to the public during the summit.
A commemorative stamp will also be issued for the Bratislava summit.
The Slovak Post Office is issuing 100,000 stamps showing Bratislava castle with both presidents' names and the words "Slovakia Summit 2005" on a blue background.
The stamp will be on sale as of February 24. It will be officially unveiled at the Incheba exhibition complex, which has been converted into a press centre for the summit.
