Pretty nice! :)
Although I would have preferred to avoid that blank space at the bottom of the 1 and 2-euro coins, so that they would look more 'uniform'.

I find the 20c a bit boring, but highly appreciate the coppers!
Wasn't the castle in the 20c coin actually built in 1991 or something similar? :D

History

Prehistory (2800 – 450 BC)

The castle, like today's city, has been inhabited for thousands of years
later it was destroyed, then...
Finally it was decided to restore the castle. Archaeological and architectonic research started in 1953 and long restoration works began in 1957. The restoration was done to the last (Baroque) state of the main building, but at many places older (Gothic, Renaissance) preserved elements or parts have been restored. The Theresianum has not been restored and the Hillebrandt building of 1762 was restored only around the year 2000.

I like them, even if I would have liked more a shiny ground on 1€ and 2€ instead of the stony one.
In any case they just keep the old slovakian coins for just the coppers:

Non-registered user xaver accidentally wrote this text in a wrong place, meaning it to be in this thread. Here's his post:
xaver wrote:Hello €-fans,

it is true, that the only design left from the current Slovak koruna´s coins is the Krivan mountain which is considered as a symbolic place in Slovak history. However, the 20-halier coins which bore this motif, have not been in circulation since January 2004. I must say I don´t like the design of €1 and €2 because of the "background of rocks". If they decided to do it that way, it was necessary to mark the three hills off the background. The three hills are important, because they´re part of the coat of arms. But it possibly could have been designed better...

That background I find interesting. What is somewhat disappointing is that the current Slovak coin series has different designs (one per denomination, originally eight, currently six) while the new series has only three different designs ...
