75 years have passed since the events of 1942 and the Czech Mint publishes a traditional complete set of four gold half-ounce coins from the free cycle called the War Year. We do not exaggerate when we say that this year was decisive for the outcome of the greatest conflict in human history.
In 1942 World War II haunted the entire planet:
The expert medal maker and teacher Luboš Charvát was the author of all four detailed coins. The reverse sides of the coins bear the following war scenes - the American Dauntless bomber attacking the Japanese aircraft carrier Akagi; British tank M3 Lee wins the German Panzer IV; the first three atomic weapons in history - Trinity, Little Boy and Fat Man - lie ahead of Manhattan's logo; a German soldier attacks the Soviet tank T 34/76. The composition of each reverse is complemented by the flag of the winning party and a inscription in the relevant language - English (Battle of Midway, Project Manhattan), Arabic (Battle of El Alamein) and Russian (Battle of Stalingrad). The obverse side is the same for the four coins. It belongs to the attributes of Niue Island (the issuer, who licenses the Czech Mint to coin its own coins), i.e the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the year of the issue 2017 and the nominal value of 5 DOLLARS (NZD). The relief of the obverse side is complemented by the five helmets belonging to the nations which appear on coins - Germans, Americans, Soviets, British and Japanese.
A set of four coins is stored in a stylish tin box.
