Dog Breeds

The seventh silver coin of the Czech Mint from the Dog Breeds series is dedicated to the Bernese mountain dog.

As its name suggests,
the Swiss canton of Bern is considered to be the cradle of the Bernese mountain dog. In the past, this versatile working breed herded cattle, guarded farms and served people who could not afford horses to pull carts and carry loads to markets. Today, these tri-coloured giants are primarily popular pets, eager to please their owner. Their muscular body with strong limbs inspires respect, but in reality they have a calm nature and a positive attitude towards life. They love being outdoors due to their farming origins. They are particularly fond of the snow and, like another Swiss breed - the St. Bernard - they can search for people lost in snowdrifts and under avalanches.

The reverse side of the coin, which is the work of the medal maker
MgA. Martin Dašek, bears two depictions of the Bernese mountain dog. The first one is coloured, thus making the black-brown-white coat of the dog stand out. The second one, which is in relief, presents the dog at a mountain shepherd´s hut. The composition is supplemented with the bilingual inscription BERNSKÝ SALAŠNICKÝ PES – BERNESE MOUNTAIN DOG. As the coins of the Czech Mint are issued with a foreign licence from the island of Niue, their obverse sides bear the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the nominal value of 1 DOLLAR (NZD) and the year of issue 2022. These attributes are supplemented with a series of footprints - human and canine.

All twelve coins from the Dog Breeds series can be stored in
a collector's book that can also be found in the offer of the Czech Mint.
