The state-owned Kremnica Mint began the serial production of Slovak euro coins on August 19, 2008, with Finance Minister Ján Počiatek and central bank (NBS) governor Ivan Šramko in attendance.

The mint is set to produce 500 million euro coins of all nominal values worth €167 million (Sk5.03 billion), with a total weight of 2,500 tonnes. There are eight denominations of euro coins, with one side displaying the EU flag common to all eurozone-member countries. The reverse sides of the coins have national designs chosen by the countries themselves, in Slovakia's case in a public survey conducted in 2005.

The Slovak 1- and 2-euro coins will show the coat of arms of Slovakia - the double-barred cross on three hills. Bratislava Castle will appear on the 5-, 10-, and 20-cent coins, while the 1-, 2-, and 5-cent coins will display the peak of Kriváň mountain in the High Tatras. TASR
