The Liberec region is situated in the north of Bohemia. From the west to the east it is bordered by mountains – Lužické and Jizerské,the Ještěd-Kozákov ridge and the highest mountain range in the country, the Giant Mountains. Modern industry is represented by machine engineering – for example the manufacture of car components and state-of-the-art textile machines. The traditional glass industry made the region famous worldwide. The real symbol of the region is the futuristic hotel on top of the Ještěd mountain, designed by architect Karel Hubáček, which aspires to be entered in the UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
The accompanying token made of Nordic Gold (alloy CuAl5Zn5Sn1) was designed by Jan Petr, a graduate of the Secondary Vocational School in Jablonec nad Nisou. The obverse side features the town halls in two neighbouring towns: Liberec and Jablonec nad Nisou. The reverse side is dominated by Štěpánka, the most beautiful lookout tower of the Jizerské Mountains.
