Memorial coins and stamps for Bush-Putin

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.
