Are you thinking about a tasteful and valuable gifts for the newlyweds? That is exactly the silver Wedding thaler of the Czech Mint, which, thanks to the engraved dedication, becomes the only original in the world.

A wedding traditions of many nations are associated with coins. You've probably already heard, that the bride should carry something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue on her big day. This tradition, which comes from an old English rhyme has yet a fifth part, which is often forgotten - a silver coin, which is the bride supposed to insert into her shoe, so that her new family enjoys happiness, wealth and prosperity. The coins are also - as the main attribute of today's weddings in the form of rings - round, and thus symbolize the infinity.

The new graphic design of the obverse side of the Wedding thaler 2017 was prepared by a young medal maker Roman Shamilyan. He has chosen the symbolism of a clockwork, a mechanism, indicating that a good marriage runs like a clockwork. Inside the sprockets he placed the pictograms of a cloverleafs and hearts - the signs of love, happiness - and also a house, a tree and a stroller, which refer to the adage "build a house, plant a tree and raise a son." The reverse side then contains a space in the form of a roll of paper to engrave a text according to your wishes. On the medal, which can accommodate up to 4 lines of text with 15 characters, including spaces, for example, can be inscribed the names of the newlyweds and the wedding date or a heartfelt dedication.

Into the gift package you can then stick a wedding photography and inscribe the information about the wedding day.
