CZECHOSLOVAKIA. Gold Medallic 4 Ducats, 1972. Kremnica Mint. NGC MS-66.
Weight: 13.7 gms. Obverse: Man seated left holding hammer and die striking coinage on anvil, coin below, all within solid square; Reverse: St. Barbara's cathedral, arms below, surrounded by legend. A medal that honors the silver mining heritage of Kuttenberg, this piece features an intriguing design and is more elusive than other Kremnica Mint products of the time. Though noted as Mint State by NGC, the present example is often called a proof and has qualities of proof coinage. The fields are lightly mirrored, and the devices are frosty, giving this piece a slightly cameo appearance. Some haziness accounts for the grade assigned, though given the uncommon nature of the piece, we expect much competition to be the next owner.
