Crystal Coin

The unique silver coins with cut Czech crystal are the result of a combination of traditional Jablonec crafts - the Czech Mint's medal making and Preciosa's glassmaking, which is unparalleled in the world. The Tree of Life has become a popular motif of the Crystal Coin gift line. The coins were quickly sold out and, due to great interest, are being reissued - for the third time - this time with summer crystal leaves and selective gold plating.

Trees give us oxygen to breathe, fruit to strengthen us, wood to warm and protect us, and last but not least, they are a delight to the eye and soul. Like a healthy tree, each of us should have
deep roots, a strong trunk and a rich crown. It is no wonder that trees belong to the most revered symbols in the world and that significant trees can be found in most cultures around the world. For example, the Bible tells of the tree of knowledge, the apple tree, which was a symbol of undefiled humanity and whose forbidden fruit was tasted by Eve. Chinese mythology speaks, for a change, of the peach tree - its roots are guarded by a dragon, its crown is protected by a phoenix, and a single fruit, borne every three thousand years, ensures man's immortality. In the Norse sagas there is the Yggdrasil - the ash tree that grows through all planes of existence and represents the universe itself. Whether their meaning is religious, philosophical or folkloric, all these trees are expressions of the ancient concept of the “tree of life“, which symbolises the unity and interconnectedness of all creation.

The medal maker
Petra Brodská, DiS., has dedicated the reverse side of the coin to the traditional depiction of the tree of life in a circular composition, with the tree's leaves formed by cut crystal stones. The Czech-English inscription bears STROM ŽIVOTA – TREE OF LIFE. As the coins of the Czech Mint are issued with the license of a foreign issuer, which is the island of Niue, their obverse side bears its necessary attributes - the nominal value of 2 DOLLARS (NZD), the year of issue 2021, the name of Elizabeth II and the portrait of the Queen surrounded by decorative branches.

The coin is issued in a limited edition of
1000 pieces and can serve as an original gift for many occasions. It is placed in elegant packaging that can simply be transformed into a practical frame for display.
