Description

Relations between Slovak Republic and European Union (Slovakia & EU) are based on the European Association Agreement, which was signed on 4th of October 1993 and came into force on 1st of February 1995.

Joining the European Union belonged to the priorities of Slovak foreign policy since the Slovak Republic was established as an independent country in 1993. Vladimír Mečiar, the Prime Minister of Slovakia, submitted the application for the Slovak Republic into the EU on 27th of June 1995 at the European Council meeting in Cannes.

Obverse

At the centre of the national side are the stylised letters "EÚ", as the abbreviation of the European Union, with the coat of arms of the Slovak Republic incorporated in the foreground. On the right-hand side of the inner part of the coin, in two lines, is the date of the Slovak Republic's accession to the European Union, "1.5.2004", and immediately below it the year "2014". Inscribed along the bottom edge of the inner part is the name of the issuing country, "SLOVAKIA", while in a semi-circle along the upper edge is the inscription "10. ANNIVERSARY OF THE ACCESSION TO THE EUROPEAN UNION". To the lower left is the mint mark of Kremnica Mint (composed of the letters "MK" between two dies), and to the lower right are the stylised letters "MP", the initials of the designer. The coin's outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union.

Reverse

A geographical map of Western Europe spans the outer ring and inner core on the right side of the coin. The inscription 2 EURO is superimposed over the map of Europe, with the numeral “2” located in an open field representing the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

12 stars are located on the right side of the outer ring, with six stars atop the map of Europe and six stars below it; six vertical stripes cut across the inner core of the coin, visually connecting the upper and lower star segments.

Luc Luycx, a designer at the Royal Belgian Mint, designed the Euro’s common reverse; his initials, LL, are seen on the right side of the design, just under the “O” in “EURO.”
