 The inner part of the coin depicts a stylised bell made up of a series of keys.

This recalls the demonstration on 17 November 1989, when marching citizens shook their bunches of keys to make a jangling sound.

This marked the beginning of the Velvet Revolution.

To the bottom right of the design are the artist’s mark and the mint mark of the Slovak Mint (Mincov ? a Kremnica).

The design is surrounded above by the legend ‘17.

NOVEMBER SLOBODA — DEMOKRACIA’ and the dates ‘1989-2009’ and below by the name of the issuing country, ‘SLOVENSKO’.

The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
