Commemorative issue

200th anniversary of the start of the horse-drawn express mail coach service between Vienna and Bratislava

Obverse

The design’s symbolic depiction of the express mail coach service between Vienna and Bratislava features a horse-drawn coach in rapid motion and a centrally placed rectangular inset containing a post-horn. Inscribed below the image is the year ‘1823’, when the express mail service began operation, and below that date are the city names in Slovak, ‘VIEDEŇ’ and ‘BRATISLAVA’, one above the other. At the bottom of the coin’s inner circle is the year of issuance ‘2023’, separated from the text above by a horizontal line. The name of the issuing country ‘SLOVENSKO’ is inscribed along the upper edge of the design. To the right of the coach is the mint mark of the Kremnica Mint (Mincovňa Kremnica), consisting of the letters ‘MK’ placed between two dies. Just below the mark are the stylised initials ‘MP’, referring to the national side’s designer Mária Poldaufová.
The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
