    Only 25 numbered sets were minted in total. This set is unnumbered and bears the letter A, indicating the author's proof coinage, and is probably the only existing set with this marking.

    This is a very rare set of ducat medals struck in 1968. A period which oscillated between the relaxed atmosphere of the Prague Spring and the invasion of Czechoslovakia by Warsaw Pact troops. At the time of issue, the complete set cost a staggering 2,830 German marks, which translated to over 55,000 Czechoslovak crowns plus value added tax. The delivery was at the end of September. The medals are housed in their original hard leatherette etui with the metal logo of Deutsche Numismatik. Included is a black-and-white certificate with the number of pieces struck and a photocopy of a page from the Numismatik List, which mentions the upcoming new mintage of these medals and the possibility of purchasing them for members of the Czech Numismatic Society.

    Director of the Prague branch

    Jan has been with us since the opening of the Prague branch and currently ensures its smooth operation.

    He always gives his clients his full attention, regardless of whether they come in with an ordinary small coin or a truly unique piece. He encountered numismatics at an early age, as his grandfather used to collect coins and stamps and Jan, while visiting, would observe him taking care of them. In this way, he gradually gained valuable advice and experience. It taught him the patience and modesty he still has today. He specialises in coins of the Austrian Empire and the popular First Republic, as well as contemporary modern production. He is in charge of compiling our annual Catalogue of Czechoslovak, Czech and Slovak Coins. He is no stranger to older Habsburg coins and medals.
