Product description

Princess Libuše is one of the most famous figures in Czech mythology. Therefore, the big woman became the motif of a large gold coin of the Czech Mint weighing a ten-ducat.

Krok
, the mythical duke of the Czechs, was a respected, ingenious and prudent man. People from all over the country came to him to judge them. He had three daughters: the eldest Kazi, a sorceress and healer, the middle Teta, a priestess speaking to ghosts, and the youngest Libuše, a clairvoyant soothsayer whom the people chose to head after Krok's death. Like her father, she fairly judged quarrels and disagreements among the people, but there were the ones who did not like her position. The shouts of the angry elder "Long hair, short reason!" and "Shame on the men ruled by the woman!" went down in history. Although the princess was strong and could punish her critics, as a wiser she decided to step down and said: “I am a woman and behave like a woman; that I do not judge you with an iron broom, it seems to you that I understand little. You need to have a caretaker over a stricter woman. Have him!” From the inspiration of the gods, she determined the place where the people found their new ruler, the legendary Přemysl the Ploughman, who became the founder of the powerful Přemyslid dynasty along Libuše's side…

The reverse side of the coin, which is the work of the medal maker
MgA. Josef Oplištil, presents Princess Libuše in a moment of clairvoyant ecstasy. "During the prophetic ritual, a 'higher state of consciousness' was induced by various substances, which were heated and distributed in a circle around the prophetic person. This fact inspired the composition of both sides of the coin. On the obverse side there is a prophetic circle, from which four columns of smoke rise. In the center of the circle there are symbols that relate to Princess Libuše as the ruler, who "justly decides when it is time to change swords into plows or vice versa." On the reverse side, four columns of smoke also rise and merge in the vision of the future of Prague, ”explains the author of the coin. The legend, according to which Libuše predicted the construction of a famous city, is also commemorated by an inscription on the reverse side: MĚSTO VIDÍM VELIKÉ, JEHOŽ SLÁVA HVĚZD SE BUDE DOTÝKAT (I SEE THE GREAT CITY THE GLORY OF WHICH WILL TOUCH THE STARS). As the coins of the Czech Mint are licensed by the foreign issuer, the island of Niue, their obverse side also bears the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the nominal value of 500 DOLLARS (NZD) and the year of issue 2021.

The schedule of issuance of the coin is only
50 pieces.
