Latin holds chief place among the liturgical languages in which Mass is celebrated, but the Slavonic language comes second to it among languages widely used throughout the world in the liturgy.

The first full-fledged writing system to represent Slavic languages was devised in the late 9th century by the monks Constantine and Methodius. In 868 Constantine and Methodius arrive in Rome, where Methodius convinces Pope Adrian II that he respects the Western (Roman) Rite in his liturgy, and that the use of Slavic for the Roman Catholic Mass that Methodius celebrates is appropriate. Adrian II approves the use of (Old Church) Slavic liturgy. Constantine enters a monastery in Rome, accepts the name Cyril, and dies the following year. The script he has designed develops into the modern Bulgarian, Serbian, Russian, and similar alphabets, and is named Cyrillics after him.

The obverse, symbolizing the beginnings of Christianity in what is now Slovakia, shows an image from a plaque found in an archaeological excavation at Bojná in western Slovakia. This is superimposed on a Greek cross, the arms of which are visible between the image and the coin edges and are filled with letters from the Glagolitic alphabet.

The reverse depicts Cyril and Methodius below the arms of a crucifix. These elements are set against a circle in which Glagolitic letters are interspersed. The year date 868 is found at the bottom.
