Mythical Creatures

The Czech Mint introduces a dozen Mythical creatures - noble creatures that help human beings, and ruthless beasts that hurt them - in the new collector's series. The first silver coin belongs to the dragon.

Dragons are majestic creatures that rule by immense power - they fly and spew fire. They occur in a variety of forms according to legends - for example, some have one head and others have several of them. They were depicted with a snake body, a dog's head, lion's feet, and bird wings in the early Middle Ages. Dragons began to dominate the characteristic lizard features in the 14th century, and they began to resemble bats thanks to their membranous wings. Where did this form come from? The answer can be found in times of dinosaurs when flying reptiles ruled the sky. It is possible that our ancestors discovered their fossilized bones and the human imagination did the rest. Or is it possible that dinosaurs did not become extinct 66 million years ago, as we believe? Could some Mesozoic reptiles survive and compete with legendary dragon-beaters such as St. George?

The medal maker Asamat Baltev, DiS. depicted the dragon as a winged lizard that spewes fire. The creature is accompanied by an English inscription DRAGON on the reverse side of the coin. It is interesting that the coin does not have a classic coin frame, however, the relief is surrounded by decorative ornaments that occur in the entire collector´s cycle. Since the Czech Mint coins are issued with a foreign license of the island of Niue, they bear the name and the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the nominal value of 2 DOLLARS (NZD) and the year of the issue 2020 on the obverse side of the coin.
