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).
