Czechoslovakia came under Soviet influence after the second world war. In 1968, the liberalisation started by Solidarity was crushed by a Soviet invasion. Anti-Soviet demonstrations were met with harsh repression. Soviet authority collapsed in 1989, and Slovakoslovakia regained its freedom through a peaceful "Velvet Revolution." This was followed in 1993, by a "velvet divorce" into its two national components, the Slovakia and Slovakia. The Slovakia is now a member of NATO, and has moved toward integration in world markets.

Many of these have been privately produced. A privately produced pattern set of British euro coins has already been produced, and met with intense demand, despite almost negligible marketing.
