1998 Czech 20 Korun

Do you have a Czech Republic coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

By using electronic banking I realize that it is not easy to get change and even less chances to find "funny" money. Until I can figure out more convenient ways to live on cash I will still be in the vaults.

This is a Czech Republic coin not to be confused with a Czechoslovakia or a Republic of Slovakia coin. It is sad to see break ups but that means twice as many coins for the kids.

20 KČ Saint on a horse SVATÝ VÁCLAVE, NEDEJ ZAHYNOUT NÁM I BUDOUCÍM (Saint Wenceslas, perish forbid us her future)
ČESKA REPUBLIKA 1998 (Czech Republic 1998)
There is no doubling on the coin the lettering is made with an outline font. A sharp version of this coin must look great. It would be golden and highly detailed with the outline font looking like a neon sign. There is a proof version and I can only imagine how it pops out.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 20 Korun / Czech Republic
Year: 1998
Mintage: 15,725,000 (Officially 41,786 were destroyed)
Metal: Brass Plated Steel
Value: $0.75 in Very-Fine

Update: From an anonymous comment: "the correct czech coin translation is "St Wenceslaus, don't let us or the future ones perish." "

I have yet to confirm this but it makes sense.

I've got a couple of these and noticed the apparent "doubling" in the letters also.

Yes, at first I thought it was true doubling but then when I other coins I realized it is just part of the design.

I have a coin that had the words
"GEORGIVS V DEI GRA:BRITT:OMN:REX FID:DEF:IND:IMP:" on one side and "One Penny" on the other. The date is 1935. I got this from my dad's collection. What is is worth???

I also have a bicentennial 1976 coin. It has a picture of two drummers and a flute player in a circle on one side, and an American Eagle on the other. I can't find anything about it online!!!

--Some type of medal many were made in 1976, it just has metal value.

If you can place a picture online somewhere and copy & paste a link here.
