The edition of the annual series Regions of the Czech Republic already includes series devoted to five of the regions of the Czech Republic. Now we would like to introduce a Series of circulating coins devoted to the sixth region - South Moravia.
The annual series includes Czech circulating coins valid in 2014, which did not circulate. The coins of the face values of CZK 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 together with a token with a grapevine motif (symbol of the region) are baked in a foil in a square lacquered folder illustrated with photographs of interesting sights of the region. Thus this year's series includes places like Špilberk Castle, the UNESCO protected Lednicko-Valtický area, the Tugendhat Villa or the Archbishop's Chateau and Gardens in Kroměříž.
The annual series of circulating coins for the South Moravia Region is a demanded increment of collections of all collectors of annual series and also an original gift for (not only) all visitors to the South Moravia Region.
Why are the annual series so popular?
The Czech Mint strikes circulating coins on the basis of commissions by the Czech National Bank. Depending on the needs of the coin circulation every year coins of a particular face value are minted, never the whole series from CZK 1 to CZK 50. These series of circulating coins, mainly popular among collectors in the case of the series Regions of the Czech Republic, are an exception. This is the only way to get a complete set of all coin face values (from CZK 1 to CZK 50) coined in a single year!

2009 South Bohemia
2010 Zlínský Region
2011 Plzeňský Region
