L&S

Two legends of Slovak culture - Milan Lasica and Július Satinský - appear on a joint commemorative medal minted from pure gold by the Czech Mint.

The humour of the cult Slovak duo of Milan Lasica and Július Satinský used to be absurd, Dadaist, ironic, nonsensical and full of tongue-in-cheek puns. Their domain was the theatre, but it was television the medium that had the biggest impact under socialism that made them famous. While Lasica represented a charming and distant persona, the hearty and folksy Satinský was his opposite. Their joint performances, which combined dialogue, sketches and music, were characterised by their insight and ability to put things in the right words. There was a social critique hidden in the humorous debates that were seemingly about nothing - they helped people live in the difficult times of normalization and became unquestionable proof that even a totalitarian regime cannot stop creativity, laughter and friendship...

Slovak medal maker Mgr. Art. Miroslav Hric, Art.D. dedicated the obverse side of the medal to Július Satinský, who is whispering conspiratorially to Milan Lasica. Silhouettes of the heads of both artists connected by a common hat can be found on both the obverse and reverse side of the medal. The medal bears the names LASICA & SATINSKÝ, the decorative initials L&S and the quote by Milan Lasica "CESTU SME MALI SPOLOČNÚ, ALE NOHY MA BOLIA VLASTNÉ" (translated as "WE SHARED THE ROAD, BUT MY OWN FEET HURT").
