Wedding ducat 2017 with dedication proof
This gold Wedding ducat of the Czech Mint is a tasteful gift for newlyweds, which combines original symbolism, the value of precious metal and sentimental value in the form of an engraved dedication.
At a time when money was made from precious metal and did not have a paper or a plastic form, coins were always a symbol of wealth, prosperity and security. No wonder, that they played an important role in the wedding rituals of our ancestors. The oldest coins found on the Czech territory are gold staters, colloquially speaking the irises, which were used by the Celts. Unlike the Roman contemporaries, the Celtic women had almost equal position with their husbands and the wedding coin was meant to symbolize the couple's willingness to share everything. In many countries around the world the coin made of precious metal still symbolizes the wishes of happiness and all the best to both newlyweds. Just like the new gold ducat of the Czech Mint for the year 2017.
The author of the obverse side is a gifted medal maker Roman Shamilyan - it is dedicated to a witty symbolism of the clockwork, which evokes a reliably functioning marriage. The individual cogwheels conceal of the hearts and a cloverleafs - the symbols of love and happiness - and also the house, the tree and the stroller referring to the old adage "build a house, plant a tree and raise a son."
The reverse side belongs to the parchment scroll, on which will be engraved your personal dedication or other text of your choice on the extent of 3 lines of 10 characters, including spaces.
A thematic package in the form of a booklet with a dust jacket includes, beside the gold ducat, also a space for inserting the wedding photography and the inscription of the information about the great day of the newlyweds.
