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: The obverse is devoted to Milan Rastislav Stefanik (1880-1919), politician, diplomat, astronomer and one of the creators of the Czechoslovak Republic. He worked as an astronomer in France and after the outbreak of the First World War, he became a pilot in the French Army, in which he achieved the rank of general. He was one of the leading representatives of the Czecho-Slovak exile struggle for the break up of Austria-Hungary and the creation of an independent state for the Czechs and Slovaks. In 1915, he began to cooperate with Tomas Garrigue Masaryk and Edvard Benes. They jointly established the Czecho-Slovak National Council in Paris. When the independent Czechoslovak Republic was established in October 1918, Stefanik became minister for war in the first Czechoslovak government. In January 1919, he returned to Paris, where he participated in the peace talks. Upon his return to Slovakia, he died tragically in a plane crash. Stefanik's portrait is supplemented by artistic elements depicting the Sun, a half-Moon and a comet, which recall that he devoted a significant part of his life to research and observation in astronomy. Reverse: The monument over the grave of Stefanik on Bradlo hill is the main design on the reverse. It overlaps with depictions of part of the Great Bear constellation and two pasqueflowers. Edge: smooth
