Olomouc thaler of moravian Estates replica standard Replica of a thaler struck in 1620 in the Olomouc mint, copying the original coin, is struck from a troy ounce of pure silver. The Moravian estates thaler dates back to the period of the Czech estates uprising when new mints were established in Moravia (in towns Brno and Olomouc) in 1619. Their main purpose was to quickly replace older silver circulation coins with new estates mintage the quality of which the issuer could guarantee. The thaler was most likely struck by the Moravian estates to enhance their prestige and for representation purposes. This is confirmed by a very low number of original coins minted that were probably made only with one pair of dies. The obverse side of the thaler is dominated by a distinct emblem of the Moravian Margraviate in the shape of a checkered eagle with a crown on its head placed freely in the field. The text in circumscription reads: MONETA . NOVA . MARCHIO. MORAVIA, or New coin of the Moravian Margraviate. The reverse side features an unusual but genuinely Moravian motif: a grapevine entwining a slender obelisk in the form of a four-sided pyramid. The obelisk is placed on an oblong stand with the word VNIO on two visible sides. The word VNIO meaning Unity on Moravian land coins emphasizes the necessity for the insurgent estates to remain united. This idea is also accentuated by the Latin text in circumscription which contains one of religious and political mottos used then by European protestants: TE . STANTE . VIREBO . 1620. It translates into English as You Will Stand Strong With Me (meaning the God’s grace). A letter "C" is placed on each side of the heel of the obelisk. The two letters are the sign of the Olomouc estates mint master Kryštof Kantor, namely of his name in Latin. Limited edition 1,000 pcs
