"A true marriage is a unique mingling of love, friendship, sensuality, and respect."
– André Maurois
In 2015, Czech Mint issuedagaintraditional silver wedding thalers. By giving them to the newlyweds you will express your most sincere wishes of lasting love, happiness and good health in an original way – with a beautifully crafted work of art.
The first shared coin has a special mission in a marriage – it is believed to ensure prosperity and luck in family affairs. That’s why it should always be among wedding gifts. Since time immemorial silver has been connected with durability and health, that’s why giving a silver thaler also expresses a wish of a lasting and strong relationship.
The exceptional gloss of the proof quality enhances the romantic motifs on both sides of the thaler. The reverse features two wedding rings linked with a heart motif. This beautiful symbolism was created by medal designer Josef Oplištil who complemented it with a fine flower base and inscription Svatební tolar 2015 (Wedding thaler 2015). The reverse was designed by academic sculptor Majka Wichnerová who placed on it linked gender symbols representing connection of a man and a woman on a flower background.
