As the youngest state mint in the world founded in 1993, the Czech Mint is, despite its young age, one of the well-known mints for beautiful collector coins.
The establishment took place due to the necessity of the separation between Czechoslovakia and Slovakia at that time
The mint named with the original name Česká mincovna was opened in the small town of Jablonec nad Nisou (Gablonz an der Neisse), which has only 45,000 inhabitants and is located on the Lusatian Neisse in the northern Czech Republic, directly on the country triangle.
As an official state mint, all circulation and commemorative coins are minted in the Czech currency, the Czech crowns (CZK).
One year after it was founded – in 1994 – they were minted as Czech commemorative coins in gold and silver, but due to the specifications such as nominal and surcharge, they are not part of the regular investment coins.
The double-tailed Bohemian lion, documented for the first time since the 13th century, is a heraldic animal with its own name and is now a stately symbol of the Czech Republic.
