Each eurozone member state is allowed to issue one commemorative €2 (Sk60.25) coin a year, according to Všeobecná Úverová Banka (VÚB).

Such coins were minted in 2004 to mark the 75th anniversary of the foundation of the Vatican City State, the Fifth Enlargement of the European Union, and the Olympic Games in Athens 2004 and in Torino in 2006. A commemorative coin was also issued to celebrate the fourth centennial of the first edition of Miquel de Cervantes' Don Quixote.

These coins have the same front sides as common euro coins, but are designed to be collectibles. TASR
