CZECHOSLOVAKIA. Uniface Silver 2 Ducats Restrike, ND (1971). Kremnica Mint. NGC MS-64.
cf. Fr-15 (for gold original); KMX-19 (same); Novotny-VI.D (same). By: Anton Ham. Obverse: St. Catherine kneeling in prayer and supplication, mining equipment before her being illuminated by the glory of God from a radiant cloud; behind her, arms of Hungary-Anjou and flowering plant, all within hexagon; Reverse: Uniface. A rather interesting numismatic offering, this off-metal and uniface piece from the period of the 1971 restrikes of the famed design provides a change of pace for those used to seeing the type in gold. Rather exquisite, and showing no real evidence of handling or friction, this piece demonstrates much commendability and certainly is nothing short of VERY RARE.
