One million of the coins will be produced in the state-run Kremnica Mint (Banská Bystrica Region), the TASR newswire reported.

The coin will have the same technical parameters as an ordinary €2-coin, and it will serve as a legally valid means of payment in Slovakia and the rest of the eurozone.

The commemorative coin, with the same motif designed by Greek artist George Stamatopoulos, will be released in all the eurozone countries, TASR reported.
