Just noticed that the 2018 issue is listed as "100th anniversary of the end of the First World War". While I would welcome such a coin (which is quite different from issuing WW1 battle commems every year since 2014), the NBS apparently canceled the plan last month. From a post (http://www.emuenzen.de/forum/threads/gestrichen-2cc-slowakei-2018-100-jahre-ende-des-ersten-weltkrieges.78554/page-3#post-996491) in a German forum:

"Dear (...), having regard to the European Commission's recommendation that commemorative euro coins should not feature themes that may be objectionable to certain EU Member States, Národná banka Slovenska has removed from its 2018 coin issue plan a €2 commemorative coin marking the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. "

The reply does not say whether the EC did actually recommend anything in this particular case. Could as well be some kind of anticipatory compliance, as in, who knows, somebody might possibly object ...
