Product description

The Infant Jesus of Prague, whom people from all over the world ask for help, healing and peace, has become the motif of the gold ducat of the Czech Mint.

Is the miraculous power of the Infant Jesus of Prague real? Many of the faithful who repeatedly return to it to say thank you for its goodwill would tell you more. The place where one can ask for miracles is not far from Malostranské náměstí. People have believed in the supernatural power of the statue of the Infant Jesus since the Thirty Years' War, when it was donated to the Church of Our Lady of Victory by Polyxena of Lobkowice. The noblewoman received the baby Jesus as a wedding gift from her mother, who came from Spain, and who received it from her mother when she went to marry in distant Bohemia. People soon began to notice that Malá Strana was out of trouble and concluded that it was the baby Jesus that saved them from the plague and the Swedes. The fame of the statue, which heals the lame and grants wishes to supplicants, then spread to all corners of the planet. Even though they often have no idea where Prague is, Spaniards, Italians, Irish and Latinos pray to the Infant Jesus of Prague. In India, for example, thirty thousand people attend services dedicated to the Infant Jesus…

The gold ducat is the work of medal maker Eva Prousková, DiS. The obverse side presents the statue dressed in an elaborate dress. The blessing baby is surrounded by Prague towers and the Czech-Latin inscription PRAŽSKÉ JEZULÁTKO – JESULUS PRAGENSIS. The reverse side bears the two royal attributes of the Infant Jesus of Prague - a crown and an apple. The composition of the reverse side is completed by shells and pearls - motifs taken from the crown, which was a gift for the Infant Jesus from Pope Benedict XVI.

The gold ducat is a particularly attractive and valuable gift for important occasions. Its integral part is a unique certificate of authenticity that is covered with a layer of gold.
