6 posts in this topic

I am sure it could be an interesting topic.Really I do not have many Slovak awards from this period in my collection,but many of them have gone through my fingers,and they will go through too.There are not many collectors of the awards of this period.There are many reasons.If somebody is interested why I will explain.First I will show some I have got the snaps I left.Later I will have to do some more pictures.Have a good fun having a look at them.

1.The Bagde Pilot -Cosmonaut of the Slovak Republic.The badge  was created because of opportunity of the flight of the first Slovak cosmonaut Ivan Bella in 2000.Obverse-the spaceship around the globe,in the middle with the territory of the Slovak Republic.Around the bagde is written-The Pilot-Cosmonaut of the Slovak Republic.Material is silver,marked at the reverse.Screwback.In nice etue,with the certificate inside.50 badges were awarded,e.g.n. 1-Ivan Bella,n.2-reserve cosmonaut -Fuljer,,n.3-the President of the country...etc.The slovak language  took the using of russian word,not american the Cosmonaut,not Astronaut.

2.The Medal of the President of the Slovak Republic

It was awarded for representing of the good name of the state and for the certain merit.

It is the 3rd grade of the award The Cross of the President of the Slovak Republic

Its diameter is 35mm.Made from bronze.In the obverse we can see the silhouette -online of the Bratislava Castle and Martin Dome.In the revese the signature The Medal of the President of the Slovak Republic with the state sign.The award came into being in 2001 on the proposal of R.Schuster,the 2 President of Slovakia.Also I had in my collection the 1st and 2nd grades.Now they are away in the collections of other collectors.

I am sorry for the deleting of the name in the certificate.

At present time a new design of the award is used.Apologise for not showing it.Simply, I do not have it in my collection.
