interesting facts:
Even though this type of coins was withdrawn in 2003, it appeared again in the boxed annual set of 2004, but struck in silver as a bait for collectors (4,000 sets were produced).

Kriváň (word comes from an adjective krivý - crooked) is the Slovak national mountain rising up to a height of 2494 m above sea level in the High Tatras. Slovaks consider it to be the most beautiful peak of the Carpathians. Kriváň has become a place of "National Gatherings" - patriotic meetings of people of culture, nationalists, and politicians. Thus Kriváň as a symbol of Slovak freedom and independence became a popular motif of past and contemporary artists. The image of Kriváň can be found also on Slovak coins of 1, 2 and 5 - euro cent [EUR].
