Depicts the coat of arms of the Slovak Republic at its centre against a background of dynamic centripetal lines representing the position and importance of the Slovak Republic during its presidency in the Council of the European Union. To the right of the coat of arms of the Slovak Republic is the year “2016”. Around the edge of the inner circle are the country name “Slovakia” and the inscription “Slovak Presidency of the EU Council”, which are separated by graphical symbols. The mintmark of the Kremnica Mint, composed of the letters “MK” between two dies, and the stylised initials of the designer “VP”, are placed in the lower part of the composition. The coin´s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.

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 dark blue 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).

Engraver: Vladimír Pavlica

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.”

Edge
