All seven Slovak banknotes were designed by the academic painter Jozef Bubak. Their artistic conception is based on a combination of modern and traditional banknote design combined with a high level of technical protection of the banknotes against counterfeiting. The obverse sides bear portraits of the most important personalities, who were active in the territory of present-day Slovakia during more than a thousand years of history and substantially contributed to the formation of the Slovak nation. The reverse sides bear places and motifs connected with their lives and activities. An exception is the hundred crown note with the motif of the Madonna from the workshop of Master Paul of Levoca. Obverse: A portrait of the Christian politician Andrej Hlinka (1864-1938) is placed on the obverse. He was an important personality in modern Slovak history, who significantly influenced the development of national consciousness and socio-political movement in Slovakia. As a member of the leadership of the Slovak National Party and from 1913 as leader of the Slovak People's Party, he severely criticized the social and nationality policy of the Hungarian government. In the revolutionary months of 1918, he supported the origin of a Czechoslovak state and secession from the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. However, after the formation of the Czechoslovak Republic he criticized the disappearance of Slovak representative institutions and the failure to solve the constitutional position of Slovakia in the joint republic. The demand for Slovak autonomy had the first place in the party programmes he promoted as a member of parliament. Thanks to its national and Christian orientation, his party became the largest in Slovakia. Reverse: The central motif on the reverse is the Madonna Protector from a medieval wall painting in the Roman Catholic Church at Liptovske Sliace near Ruzomberok. A picture of the Roman Catholic church of St.Andrew at Ruzomberok and the mausoleum of A. Hlinka in the same town fill the left part. Edge: smooth
