Product description

The seventh gold coin with a nominal value of 5,000 CZK from the five-year cycle of the Czech National Bank, which is dedicated to the urban conservation areas of the Czech Republic, features the beauty of Olomouc. The mintage stands out for its top-quality proof.

Olomouc is steeped in history. It was inhabited by prehistoric people, Celts, Germans and Romans, who set up the northernmost camp in Central Europe. Legend has it that the Moravian city was founded by the Emperor Julius Caesar himself. In the Middle Ages, the Slavs came here and built the oldest settlement in the Czech Republic. The settlement of the area was continued by the Great Moravian Mojmírovci and after them by the Přemyslids. The famous Bohemian dynasty built a castle in Olomouc and eventually died out here - after the murder of Wenceslas III - by the sword. Until the Thirty Years' War, it was the main and largest Moravian city, which was reflected in the magnificent architecture of churches, religious and secular palaces, university buildings, the town hall and three- to four-storey town houses in the main squares and streets. The centre of the fertile Haná region was of economic, administrative, educational and ecclesiastical, as well as military importance. In the 18th century the town was rebuilt into a fortress and in 1971 the fortified part of Olomouc, which was enclosed by walls and accessible only through the town gates, became a municipal conservation area. It is the largest historical urban formation in Moravia.

The design by academic sculptor Zbyněk Fojtů won the art competition of the Czech National Bank. The expert committee was impressed by the imaginative collage of historical Olomouc buildings. On the reverse side you will find the ground plan and tower of the Gothic Church of St. Moritz and the Baroque Holy Trinity Column, which is a UNESCO monument. The obverse side is dedicated to the Olomouc astronomical clock. Heraldic animals of the Czech Republic complete the composition.

You can store your collection of gold coins from the ten-piece cycle of the Czech National Bank in a wooden collector's case that you can also find in the offer of the Czech Mint.
