Have you already bought the “Buffalo” commemorative banknote? If you have, then you must not miss the latest “Mare and Stallions” commemorative note from the student banknote design series. The note will be on sale from 1 October 2020 in our e-Shop.
The commemorative banknote with a motif of porcelain figures called “Stallions and Mare” by Jaroslav Ježek is the fruit of close cooperation between the STÁTNÍ TISKÁRNA CENIN (State Printing Works for Securities) and the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. STC has prepared and printed the commemorative banknote according to a design by student Tuan Vuong Trong, who has used motifs of Czech applied art as a way of presenting national wealth. The commemorative banknote presents a work by industrial designer Jaroslav Ježek and his figure sculptures, which were a success at the EXPO 58 World’s Fair in Brussels. The reverse side of the note contains motifs from a cover of the book “The Sorrows of Old Werther” by Konstantin Fedin, which was designed by Czech painter, illustrator and graphic artist Radim Malát.
“Stallions and Mare” Commemorative banknote is not possible to reservation. The commemorative note will be available for purchase from 10 October 2020.
