The extraordinary "reverse proof" edition of the coin designed for 2018 is based on a total load of 3000 pieces, which will be distributed as follows: - 2000 pieces stored in a luxury etui together with a standard quality coin and 1000 pieces stored in a special numbered packaging.
The first mintage in the set is in the form of a classic coin called "Czech Lion" embossed in the quality "standard". The second mintage is then a special coin issued on the occasion of 2018 when we celebrate 100 years since the founding of Czechoslovakia and a quarter century since the establishment of the Czech Republic. Usually we do not meet a similarly significant jubilee, and this special coin has got an extra coat. Its relief has been embossed in a unique "reverse proof" design. This quality is the opposite of the usual "proof" design. It features a matte coin face and a mirror-glossy relief. This is the first mintage of that type which has come to the offer of the Czech Mint!
The extraordinary patriotic motif of the reverse side of the coins has a strong connection to our statehood. It presents a two-tailed lion guarding the St. Wenceslas crown and a flaming Saint Wenceslas eagle on the shield. In addition, the reverse side in „reverse proof“ design bears a pair of linden stroys and a modified circular composition. Circular composition and linden branches differ from each other also on the sides of the pair of coins. However, they have the common attributes of Niue Island (the portrait and the name of Queen Elizabeth II, the year of the issue 2018, together with the nominal value of 2 DOLLARS (NZD)), which provides the Czech Mint with a foreign license to coin its own coins. The relief of both mintages was made by Asamat Baltaev, DiS., who was inspired by Jaroslav Bejvl's original drawing.
An integral part of the coin set is the luxury etui.
