Silver coin CRYSTAL COIN - One Day at a Time - Sahara proof
Carpe diem! Already the ancient Latins were aware, that a man should live each day to the fullest, as if it was his last. This message is also the main motive of silver coin of the unique gift series of the Czech Mint Crystal Coin. Its name is „One Day at a Time“, therefore "Live for the moment."
Hot air balloon has fulfilled men's oldest dream and allowed him to soar into the clouds like a bird. Although it was over time replaced by a more sophisticated and more practical means of aeronautics, it will forever remain a symbol of freedom, excitement, adventure and a journey into the unknown (just remember the novels of Jules Verne, where the gentlemen in top hats embark on an incredible voyage around the world). It represents rising above everyday practical matters and liberation from fear and caution, which often prevents a person from achieving his true goals. Just like the balloon, each of us should from time to time, get carried away by the wind, to see where the fate takes us …
That is why the talented medaillist Petra Kobrlová, DiS., has chosen hot air balloon as the dominant motif of the coin, whose theme is enjoying life. The so called envelope, the main bag-like part of the balloon which holds the hot air, is made up of a cut crystal stone on this coin. Complemented by the silver relief is a traditional Czech glass and is an essential feature of the product series Crystal Coin. The world famous Jablonec company Preciosa has taken extreme care in the processing of the crystal components.The reverse of the coin also bears another smaller aerostat, a directional compass rose in the background and an English text ONE DAY AT A TIME on the preiter. The obverse side of the coin belongs to the attributes of the the issuer, thus the island of Niue, which provides a license to mint coins for the Czech Mint, and bears the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II., the year of issue of the coin 2017 and the nominal value of 2 DOLLARS (NZD).
A unique gift, that sends a message to your loved ones to not forget to live life to the fullest!
Part of the gift package, that also serves as a practical frame for issuing the coin, is a trilingual certificate of authenticity.
