The Czech Republic is a country rich in lookout towers. To the most beautiful of them which are scattered throughout the country Czech Mint dedicated its own collector series. In its framework it presents three lookout towers every year. The last medal struck in 2014 depicts Babylon.

Babylon is one of the oldest lookout towers in Moravia. It was erected on Zelený vrch (the Green Hill)491m above sea level. The stone tower in the Empire style was built in 1831 by count Jindřich Vilém Haugwitz, the owner of the Náměšť manor. The 24.5m high lookout tower has a square base, while higher stories are octahedral.

The medals in the series were designed by Jan Hásek, Luboš Charvát and Josef Oplištil. Babylon is the work of experienced artist Josef Oplištil. The obverse is dominated by the tower with a compass rose in the background. On the reverse the author placed a map of the Kramolín village where Babylon is situated, and the compass needle.

When complete the series will comprise twelve medals for which you can buy a luxurious wooden case. The gold one-ounce medals are minted in a limited edition of mere 300 pieces. Do not allow your collection to be incomplete!
