This coin is dedicated to the patron saints of Slovakia, Constantine (Cyril) and Methodius, and marks the 1150th anniversary of the advent of their Mission to Great Moravia.

The reverse shows Constantine and Methodius along with the symbolic double cross stood on three hills. The cross is at the same time held as a Bishop's crozier, thereby linking together symbols of statehood and Christianity and emphasizing the significance of the brothers' mission, which helped ensure the full sovereignty and legitimacy of Great Moravia – the first Slav state in central Europe. The figure of Constantine is holding a book representing education and faith, while Methodius is shown with a church symbolizing faith and institutional Christianity. The coin's outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European Union.

The design for this coin was originally rejected by the EU on the grounds of not abiding with religious neutrality, mainly because of the presence of halos on the two saints.
