Product description

The Slovak silver euro coin was minted in quality standard on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Krista Bendová.

Krista Bendová started to write while studying high school, when her work was published by various magazines. She published several collections of poetry in which she reflected on human existence, however, she concentrated on prose for children and young people instead of intimate lyricism since 1940. Her work, which was imbued with a child's vision of the world, was characterised by sense of humour. In addition to her own work, she also translated Soviet and Czech literature. Although she was inspired by everyday life, she did not lack imagination. The books “Bola raz jedna trieda, Opice z našej police“ and the Osmijanko series belong to the best of Slovak literature. The author, who was awarded the title of Meritorious Artist, worked her way into the style of a modern parody fairy tale.

The reverse side of the coin, which was designed by Štefan Novotný, is dominated by a portrait of the writer supplemented with her name and the life years - KRISTA BENDOVÁ, 1923-1988. The additional motif on the reverse side is an open book “Bola raz jedna trieda“. The obverse side, designed by Karol Ličko, refers to the book Opice z našej police (Monkeys from our shelf) - it presents a trio of naughty primates playing in a library. The composition of the obverse side is completed by the inscription SLOVENSKO, the national emblem, the nominal value of 10 EUR and the year of issue 2023.

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