Czech UNESCO Heritage

The thirteenth issue from the collector-investment series of platinum coins, which pays homage to Czech monuments inscribed on the UNESCO list, is dedicated to the stud farm in Kladruby nad Labem.

The national stud farm in Kladruby nad Labem
is a breeding station of the oldest original Czech horse breed. The Kladruber - massive carriage white horses with a typical hornbeam head - are elegant, persistent, reliable, easy to handle and very docile. The breeding of animals, which were specially bred for ceremonial purposes of the imperial court, began in the time of Rudolf II. and continues for more than four centuries. The Kladruby landscape with pastures and water canals has preserved its pre-industrial form.

The reverse side of the coin from the studio of the medal maker
Lenka Nebeská, DiS., is dominated by a view of the characteristic architecture of the stud farm, supplemented with a depiction of an Kladruber foal. The cub, which is born black and at first resembles a clumsy legged donkey, will turn into a majestic white horse not earlier than after seven years. The composition is lined with an astragal and the inscription KLADRUBY NAD LABEM - NÁRODNÍ HŘEBČÍN (KLADRUBY NAD LABEM – THE NATIONAL STUD FARM). The obverse side of the coin, which is common to the entire platinum series, then bears a collage of architectural elements from various Czech buildings inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. As the coins of the Czech Mint are licensed by a foreign issuer, the island of Niue, the obverse side still bears its necessary attributes - a nominal value of 50 DOLLARS (NZD), the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. and year of issue 2021.

A special certificate of authenticity
builds an integral part of the coin.

There were twelve material monuments inscribed on the UNESCO list when the platinum series began to be published. This prestigious list expanded by two more Czech sights in 2019. They also appear on coins, but unfortunately do not fit into the wooden collector's case, which was created in 2017.
