Product description

The silver coin with a nominal value of 10 euro was minted in quality standard on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the birth of the Slovak writer Ľudmila Podjavorinska.

"My childhood was cheerless, even my parents were not very happy with me. Like Matej's goose, I was very weak... I read a lot as a child, although I did not yet understand everything. My childish mind was full of dreams and imagination.
I got to know life only from books. Our home life was a counterbalance to the unreal. Lots of work, eternal duties," confided Ľudmila Podjavorinská, who was the first woman ever to be awarded the title of national artist in 1947. She read a lot as a child and created a lot as an adult. She became known as an expert on the human soul - describing the bitter fates of ordinary people, everyday family problems, women's worries and heated social and ethical conflicts. She began by publishing poetry, but soon turned to prose. Her work was published in various newspapers and magazines - she wrote poems, novels, letters and critical articles and became the founder of modern Slovak literature for children. She did not impose moralizing and didactic messages on children - instead, she relied on playfulness, joy and humour.

The reverse side of the coin, which is the work of the medal maker
Asamat Baltaev, DiS., presents a faithful portrait of Ľudmila Podjavorinska surrounded by a flower garland. Among the flowers there are the sparrows from the verse fairy tale Chin-Chin. The portrait is supplemented with the writer's name and the life years. The obverse side is dominated by an open book, from which not only the sparrows, but also the bunnies and frog from the fairy tales "Zajko bojko" and "Žabiatko" jump out. The composition of the reverse side is supplemented with a nominal value of 10 EURO, the inscription SLOVENSKO, the year of issue 2022 and the Slovak national emblem.

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