This release honors the 100th anniversary since the birth of Slovak Jesuit priest and Cardinal of the Catholic Church, Ján Chryzostom Korec (1924–2015).

He was ordained a priest in 1950 and consecrated bishop in 1951. Because of government suppression of the Catholic Church, he spent 39 years working as a priest without government authorization, either in prison or supporting himself as a laborer. In 1990 Pope John Paul II named him Bishop of Nitra and in 1991 named him a cardinal. He retired in 2005.

The reverse shows a portrait of Cardinal Korec. The obverse depicts a pair of hands joined in prayer and holding a rosary. They are placed on top of an open book and behind them is a cross adorned with a crown of thorns. The open book rests on a closed book, below which is a ribbon bearing the inscription ‘UT OMNES UNUM SINT’, the cardinal’s episcopal motto expressing his de- sire for the unity of all.

The proof coin comes delivered in a coin case, and includes a certificate of authenticity.
