The state-owned Kremnica Mint is set to produce 2.5 million commemorative 2-euro coins in January 2009, marking the 10th anniversary of the EU's Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), Central Bank (NBS) spokesperson Jana Kováčová told the TASR newswire on September 2.
The coins will have the same technical parameters as ordinary 2-euro coins and after being put into circulation in January 2009 will stand as a full-value means of payment in all eurozone countries, including Slovakia, Kováčová said. TASR
