Nach dem Zerfall der österreichisch-u

After the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, the Czechoslovak Republic was proclaimed in 1918, marking the dawn of a new era for our neighbouring country. The presentation will discuss important stages in this momentous period, such as the annexation of the Sudetenland in 1938, the 1968 Prague Spring, the Velvet Revolution in the winter of 1989 or the dissolution into the Czech Republic and Slovakia in 1993.

A host of coins, commemorative coins and banknotes shed light on a process of development that took more than a century. These forms of legal tender thus reflect the political and social conditions of the time while also constituting some exceptional works of artistic design.

Czechoslovakia had a prolific tradition in the field of medallic art extending back to the first half of the 20th century. In modern times, this genre is characterised by its creative and experimental ideas. Well-known Czech and Slovak art medallists continue to earn recognition outside their own countries to this day.
