The silver coins with a nominal value of CZK 200 in the performance proof from the issue plan of Czech National Bank are traditionally dedicated to the anniversary of the key events of the Czech history. One of them is the Battle of Königgrätz, a monumental military engagement of more than 400,000 men, which took place over 150 years ago.

The disagreements of Prussia and Austria, the two dominant monarchies in the heart of Europe, culminated in the 1866 into a war. This, even though it is known as The Seven-week war, influenced the future of Europe for decades ahead. The battle of the "Králový Hradec" proved to be decisive. Neither the heroism of the devoted soldiers, among which distinguished themselves the Czechs defending their homeland, have not save Austria from a humiliating defeat. As the result, the monarchy lost its influence and territories, and its Hungarian part enforced a dualism. It has also become a gloomy harbinger of the First World War.

For a talented artist and student of Jablonec medal college Roman Shamilyan, this was the first success in the competition of the Czech National Bank. Instead of a descriptive realism he took an advantage of the original symbolism, which impressed the Commission of assessments of proposals for the Czech money so much, that it secured the young author the first place.

The outcome of the battle is on the coin expressed by Prussia prancing on the expense of Austria - on the obverse in words, on the reverse as a heraldic animals, represented by the Prussian female eagle and the Austrian eagle.

"I found out about the victory in an interesting way. Last year I went to the Czech Mint Day at the Postal Museum and there I met a member of the Commission. I wondered if he knew the results. He said that the first place was awarded to someone from the Jablonec college.

I asked him the name. He was not sure, he did not know me yet, but he described the coin to me, and I enthusiastically blurted out: ,It must be mine!' It was a great surprise to me and

I immediately and happily called home to my wife," he recalls with a smile.
