Silver coin Legends of Czech Ice hockey - David Moravec proof
The series of silver coins of the Czech Mint "Legends of Czech Hockey" was launched on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Nagano Olympic Games and gave tribute to the twelve phenomenal hockey players. David Moravec can not miss among them.
"Rewrite history! The Czech Republic won the Winter Olympics in an Ice Hockey!"- so the sports commentator Robert Záruba excitedly described the victory of Czech hockey players on the 18th. Winter Olympics in Nagano in Japan. However, our "gold boys" were still warming up. The Czech team was an unstoppable machine for victory at the turn of the 20th and 21st century. It won the gold medal between 1999 and 2001 at World Championship after the Olympic gold in 1998. An important role in this was played by long-haired bearded sympathetic David Moravec. The middle striker, who was one of the golden successors in Nagano, took part in two of the three championship triumphs and was the author of the final decisive goal at championship in 2001, which provided us with a unique "gold hat-trick".
The reverse side of the coin, which is the work of the medal maker and teacher MgA. Josef Oplištil presents a charismatic portrait of the attacker, supplemented by his number 22. The text in the inscription presents DAVID MORAVEC - THE TITLE OF THE WORLD MASTER 1999, 2001. The coins of the Czech Mint are issued in a foreign license of the state of Samoa and their obverse side contains its necessary attributes, which are the profile and the name of the Emperor Elizabeth II, the nominal value of 2 DOLLARS (WST) and the year of the issue 2018.
