Product description

The silver coin with a nominal value of 10 EUR was minted in quality proof to the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Slovak teachers' choir.

„Spevácky zbor slovenských učiteľov“
(the "Slovak Teachers' Choir") is a male vocal ensemble that was founded in Trenčín in 1921 and since then it has ever been continuously active. Its founding members wanted to elevate the Slovak nation through art and strengthen relations between Slovaks and Czechs. These goals were included in the motto „Spevom budiť lásku k rodu“ ("Singing to Love the Family"). Over the past century, the choir has performed in thousands of performances - with folk, national and sacred songs, in cities and villages, in Slovakia and around the world. Domestic and foreign critics emphasize the fullness of sound, the purity of intonation, deeply felt speech, culture, cordiality and the social charm of the entire team, which has an irreplaceable place in the cultural history of Slovakia.

The obverse side of the euro coin, which is the work of
academic sculptor Zbyněk Fojtů, presents part of the choir's logo in the form of a woman's face with tousled hair. In the upper part of the obverse side there is a musical outline with the Slovak national emblem, in the lower part there is a silhouette of the castle with the inscription TRENČÍN and the annual dates 1921–2021. The reverse side of the coin bears the notation of the Slovak anthem. The individual notes are filled with letters, which form the text SPEVÁCKY ZBOR SLOVENSKÝCH UČITEĽOV. In the upper part of the obverse side there is a lyre supplemented with the annual dates 1921–2021.

The coin was minted by the
Mincovňa Kremnica Mint and issued by the National Bank of Slovakia.
