CZECHOSLOVAKIA. Gold Medallic 4 Ducats Restrike, "1928" (1974). Kremnica Mint. NGC MS-68.
Fr-6; KMX-4; Novotny-I.A. By: Otakar Spaniel. Obverse: Saint driving plow drawn by the Devil left, miner emerging from the ground on a ladder, holding oil lamp, tree and machine surround; all within beaded square; Reverse: Coat of arms bounded by laurel branches, arms topped by St. Wenceslas holding banner and raising hand; army on horseback behind. An intriguing piece made to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Republic of Czechoslovakia, this example is a faithful restrike of the original, produced in 1974. Approaching perfection, this piece displays no real evidence of handling or marking and is entirely beautiful with a rich and full luster. Exact numbers produced of the 1974 restrike are unknown, though they seem to be rather elusive, ensuring a flurry of spirited bidding when this example is offered.
