Gold one-ounce medal Look-out tower Petřín proof
A tenth addition of the collectibles series of commemorative medals called the Lookout towers is a building inspired by the famous Eiffel Tower - Petřín Tower -, which presents itself in one troy ounce of pure gold.

M. and is one of the most significant dominants of the golden Prague. From the top of the Petřín Hill, that rises above the Lesser Town, its visitors can admire the magnificent panorama of the capital city with the dominant Prague Castle and the winding Vltava River. But there is more - from the platform located at a height of 55 meters in clear weather they can also see the mythical Říp and the Czech Central Mountains Brdy and in the far northeast, even the Giant massif.
