History of Minting

After the Celtic irises, Přemyslid denarii, Prague groschen, florins of Jan of Luxembourg, Jáchymov tolars and groschen of Maria Theresa, the cycle "History of Czech Coins" is being closed with a replica of the crown.

the price of silver decreased at the end of the 19th century, it had to be replaced by gold in the economy. Therefore, a new currency based on yellow metal was introduced in Austria-Hungary in 1892. Its name “the crown“ - was derived from the badge of royal power. The first gold coin was created at that time. A gold ten-crown coin was commonly used to pay in our country. However, smaller coins continued to be minted from cheaper metals. The first one-crown coin was silver. Emperor Francis Joseph I agreed with the introduction of new currency only very reluctantly. He hated change, but he lived in a time when everything was changing. Most of that changed during the First World War, after which nothing was the same as before. The war, which costs a lot of money, destroyed several ancient empires and drained all gold and silver from money. The coins have not cosisted of precious metals anymore. Czechoslovakia, which originated on the ruins of Austria-Hungary, then became the only successor state to the Habsburg monarchy, where the name of the old currency remained with a different attribute. The Austrian crown became the Czechoslovak crown and we still pay with the crown to this day...

A replica of the Austrian crown coin
, which bears a portrait of Francis Joseph I, together with a depiction of his imperial crown that is minted from silver. It was created by the academic sculptor Jan Lukáš according to original historical mintage.
