Product description

Czechs use circulating coins of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 CZK almost every day. They pass through countless human hands, and their most important characteristics are therefore their durability and resistance. However, our coins are also small works of art in addition to a means of exchange. Therefore, the Czech Mint, in cooperation with the Czech National Bank, mints them in the delicate quality proof, which is characterised by its mirror-like lustre and will delight every collector. The set will be released in 2023, which marks the 30th anniversary of the Czech Mint and the Czech currency.

All coins have their authors. Have you ever wondered who is behind the Czech currency? It is a quartet of top academic sculptors:

  •  The 1 and 2 CZK coins come from the workshop of Jarmila Truhlíková-Spěváková (* 14 November 1940) - her crown coin so appealed to the National Bank that she worked on the two crowns as a direct commission without announcing a competition.
  • The  five-crown  coin is the work of the legendary artist Jiří Harcuba (6 December 1928 - 26 July 2013), who used the design of his earlier coins, which were used by Czechoslovaks to pay during the times of socialism and federation.
  • The 10 and 50 crown coins were designed by Ladislav Kozák (31 August 1934 - 22 July 2007), who received the prestigious award for the most beautiful coin in the world for the bi-metallic circulation coin with our largest nominal value.
  • The twenty-crown is the work of Vladimír Oppl (* 19 January 1953), who is the author of the Order of T. G. Masaryk, the most beautiful gold coin in the world, the largest gold coin in Europe and you may still remember his fifty-haler.

The set of Czech currency with the year 2023 is supplemented with a pure silver commemorative medal with the motif of Ottokar II of Bohemia. The medal maker Mgr. Petr Horák dedicated its obverse side to the sitting king, whose image was inspired by the statue on the Powder Tower. The inscription bears the monarch's name and admiring alias - PŘEMYSL OTAKAR II., KRÁL ŽELEZNÝ A ZLATÝ. Additional motifs are Přemysl's heraldic animals and a rosette from the Golden Crown Monastery, which the king founded. The reverse side of the medal then presents the King's relics. His skull, which was dissected in the battle on the Moravian Field, his funeral crown and the Latin inscription taken from this jewel - HIC SUNT OSSA OTACARI INCLITI REGIS BOHEMIE QUINTI (here are the bones of Otakar, the famous fifth king of Bohemia).

The six coins are placed together with the medal in an elegant paper packaging which includes a certificate of authenticity printed by the State Printer of Valuables.
