Slovakia 2015: Ľudovít Štúr - born 200 years ago
« on: August 12, 2014, 02:08:13 AM »
in 2015 a €2 coin from Slovakia will honor Ľudovít Štúr. He was a writer and linguist, and also active in politics. The design is not known yet; the coin will probably be issued in October.

This year Slovakia plans to issue a 2 Euro on birth centenary of Ludovit Stur.

Ľudovít Velislav Štúr, known in his era as Ludevít Štúr, was the leader of the Slovak national revival in the 19th century, the author of the Slovak language standard eventually leading to the contemporary Slovak literary language.

The image of the proposed coin is

Kindly note that the year of his death was 1856 and not 1865.

I don't think so, especially when the mistake has already been brought to their notice..

What do you think, they will do with pieces already minted?
Will they not follow another famous K ( Kolkata ) mint?

Didn't know that the coins have already been minted. Then it makes sense to melt them down, just like the French Mint which destroyed Monegasque €1 coins in 2007 which were missing the mint mark.

According to a post in a Dutch forum, this is a sort-of-preliminary version. The mint stated that the year will be correct (and the portrait updated) in the final version. :)  Merged the two topics regarding this coin.
