This, Slovakia’s first commemorative coin, is in honour of the so-called “Velvet Revolution”.

As the name suggests the revolution, which occurred in November 1989 was non violent.The protest for more freedom, was characterized by the rattling of keyrings – this accounts for the motif.

The central motif shows a stylized bell which is made out of many keys.Under the bell, in a small square the initials of the artist – PK can be seen as well as the Slovakian Mint (MK) in a small circle.

On the top half of the inner circle can be seen 17.NOVEMBER SLOBODA DEMOKRACIA (17.NOVEMBER FEEDOM DEMOCRACY).

One million coins were minted.

This is the first commemorative coin issued by Belgium and commemorates a revised economic treaty between Belgium and Luxembourg.

The motif shows the heads of the Grand Duke Henri (Luxembourg) on the left and the King Albert (Belgium) on the right, both facing left.

In the outer ring, next to the heads of the respective heads of state are their monograms.

The mint mark is in the outer ring and can be seen at around seven o’clock. The mark of the mint director, also in the outer ring, is at five o’clock.

Unusually, there is no country designation anywhere on the coin.

Another interesting feature is the raised arc running from nine to six o’clock which contains six of the EU stars.

Six Million coins were minted.

See you next Monday with a new coin and a new country.
