Product description

The fourth silver medal from the gift cycle of the Czech Mint bears a mandala with a motif of financial prosperity.

The word mandala comes from ancient Indian Sanskrit and can be translated as a
circle. However, its meaning is not so simple - it represents infinity, perfection, balance, unity… Mandalas have the form of a circular shape with a center with symmetrically arranged shapes. Besides shapes that symbolize masculine energy, mandalas also contain colors that represent feminine energy. Therefore, even silver medals must not miss colors. The power of each mandala is hidden in its center, where everything begins and ends, therefore, a glass stone is set in the middle of the medal. Although people associate mandalas primarily with the civilizations of South Asia, their variations occur across time, cultures, and religious and philosophical systems - just look at the windows of European cathedrals or the dream catchers of the American Indians. They are a tool for relaxation, meditation and self-knowledge, but also for solving problems or fulfilling desires. Since financial security became the greatest desire for many people, the Czech Mint dedicated that motif to the fourth gift mandala.

Silver has ever been a symbol of wealth
. In history, people used to pay with silver, and although it may seem nonsense today, sometimes people preferred it to gold - for example, in ancient Egypt… Silver played a key role in Czech history. We have heard about the so-called gold rush era in the world, but a silver rush broke out in our country in the Middle Ages. At that time, a number of fabulously rich deposits were found in the Czech Kingdom - for example, in Kutná Hora, whose mines provided an incredible one third of the silver production of the whole of Europe. Later, silver began to be mined in the Ore Mountains, and in Jáchymov, silver coins called tolars were minted from it. They spread to the world and the dollar, a currency that is a symbol of financial prosperity nowadays, results from the distortion of their names.

The obverse side of the medal, processed by the young medal maker
Kristýna Šánová, bears a glass center surrounded by an ornament, which hides a number of pouches symbolizing wealth. The reverse side of the medal, which is relief, is then common to a number of mandalas of the Czech Mint.

The gift medal represents an
original talisman. Other mandalas, which you will find in the offer of the Czech Mint, have motifs of love, friendship and health.
