CZECHOSLOVAKIA. Gold Medallic 15 Ducats, 1931. Kremnica Mint. NGC MS-62.
Bo-135. Weight: 52 gms. Mintage: 4 in gold. By: Josef Šejnost. Obverse: Church in Libus; Reverse: Chalice set upon book, inscription in three lines UCINILT JEST S NAMI VELIKE VECI HOSPODIN. Enchanting in all facets, this incredible medal honors the sesquicentennial of the Patent of Tolerance, allowing non-Roman Catholics the ability to worship more freely in the Holy Roman Empire. Struck with incredible precision and with a relief that pops the devices quite literally off flan, this piece is a masterwork of the Kremnica Mint. Matted luster gently reflects light, and the surfaces display no evidence of wearing on the devices. A single hit is seen on the obverse, and scratch on the reverse are a modest drawback to this piece. Even still, given the immense RARITY of the piece, and its unlikeliness to be offered again in the foreseeable future, we expect much spirited competition to become the new owner of this most impressive of Czech medals.
