It's interesting to compare the two 50 halierov coins. The aluminium version was 22 mm in diameter, compared to 18.75 for the later copper-plated steel coin. The design of the later version seems considerably more detailed.

The designer of this series was Drahomír Zobek, and his initial, a small "Z", appears at the bottom of each obverse and reverse. The mint mark of the Kremnica Mint also appears in the exergue on the common obverse.

This was a very attractive and distinctive design series.

As usual, I forgot something. The aluminium-bronze 10 korun coin featured a bronze cross, around 1000 years old, that was excavated in the village of Veľká Mača.
