Freedom and Democracy

Issued year - 2009, November
This new Slovakian beauty depicted in the image together with the Luxembourg EMU coin, are the result of my first exchange with Marián Sedílek, from Slovakia. These two in exchange for 2 commemorative portuguese coins.
20th anniversary of 17 November 1989 (Day of the fight for freedom and democracy).The coin shows a stylised bell with keys serving as clappers. It recalls the demonstration on 17 November 1989 when protesters jangled their keys to symbolise the unlocking of doors, an event which marked the beginning of the ‘Velvet Revolution’ in Czechoslovakia, as it then was.
Thanks, Marián.
