Obverse

Coat of arms of Slovakia, year of mintage, mintmark of the Kremnica Mint (MK) and engraver's mark.

The coat of arms of Slovakia consists of a shield, in early Gothic style, charged with a double cross standing on the middle peak of a mountain consisting of three peaks. Extremities of the cross are amplified, and its ends are concaved. The double cross is a symbol of its Christian faith and the hills represent three symbolic mountain ranges: Tatra, Fatra (made up of the Veľká Fatra and Malá Fatra ranges), and Mátra (the last one is in northern Hungary).

Depicts a neolithic figurine of a sitting woman (IV BC) from the archaeological excavation of the Neolithic settlement at Nitriansky Hradok, which was dubbed Hrádocká Venuša, or the Venus of Hradok. "Venus" is an umbrella term used in archaeology for objects of this type. In 1997 a statue by Jaroslav Gubric was erected at Hradok, an enlarged copy of the figurine.
