Statutory towns

Jihlava situated in the center of the Vysočina region is the fifteenth statutory city that appears on the medals of the Czech Mint minted from one kilogram of pure silver.

Jihlava
is very close to silver. Originally a Slavic market village became a thriving cosmopolitan city which at that time was perhaps surpassed only by Prague shortly after the discovery of rich silver sources in the middle of the 13th century. Mining experts, craftsmen and traders from the most important European mining centers came to the city. Wealthy entrepreneurs could afford to build expensive and stately stone houses with arcades. Coins were also minted in the city. Such wealth had to be guarded - the city was protected by massive fortifications, but it was also famous for its own list of legal norms. Kutná Hora later sought lessons in Jihlava's mining law and became the basis for the famous legal Code of King Wenceslas II. "Ius Regale Montanorum".

Five gates were part of the Jihlava fortifications. The Gate of the Mother of God is the only one that survived to this day. This was placed by the medal maker Petra Brodská, DiS. on the obverse side of the medal. The composition of the obverse side is supplemented with an aerial view of the city center. The reverse side of the medal bears a map of the Czech Republic with marked statutory cities.

The weight of the kilogram mintage is respectable, but also its schedule of issuance - only 24 numbered pieces stored in a luxurious wooden case will be created.
