Infant Jesus of Prague

Graceful statue comes from Spain. Lovely face of the Infant Jesus attracts thousands of tourists with its beauty.
The small statue is a 19-inch (48 cm) high, wooden and coated wax representation of the Infant Jesus. The surface of the wax is quite fragile. In order to protect the fragile wax surface, the bottom half below the waist is enclosed in a silver case. The right hand of the statue is raised in a gesture of blessing, with two fingers raised symbolizing the two natures of Jesus Christ and the three folded fingers represent the Holy Trinity. The left hand holds an imperial orb surmounted by a cross, signifying sovereignty. The image is clothed in a long robe below which his bare feet can be seen. In the past, the statue was decorated with small jewels, presented as gifts. The most valuable one was a copy of the Order of the Golden Fleece, which is now lost. Since 1788, the statue's raised two fingers have worn two rings, as a thanksgiving gift by a noble Czech family for healing their daughter, along with its golden blond hair. Some earlier records indicate that the original wig was possibly white.

"We have gold because we can not trust the government"

(Herbert Hoover)


For 16 years, Czechs have been buying investment gold ingots and coins at www.Zlate-Mince.cz. Investment gold of Swiss origin sells and buys in close cooperation with the largest gold distributor, belonging to the Vienna Mint and the Austrian Central Bank.

The need to motivate, reward or build image is one of the fundamental priorities of any successful business.


Production of coins and medals excellence is lengthy, challenging but also fascinating process. It is the story of the search for perfection.

"Currency - these are just different names for different quantities of gold"

(Robert Mundell)


Historically medalists were typically also involved in producing their designs, and were usually either sculptors or goldsmiths by background.

In modern times medallists are mostly primarily sculptors of larger works, but in the past the number of medals and coins produced were sufficient to allow specialists who spent most of their career producing them.

Europe's youngest mint blends old and new in its medal production

The Prague Mint is headquartered in the Municipal House in the cultural center of Prague. The site was once, appropriately, host to the Bohemian king’s court, and the king controlled the right of minting. Today the Prague Mint strikes its issues elsewhere, but the site is a link to Prague’s minting history.

Growing market for Czech medals keeps mint busy

While some mints use design software to crank out dozens of different coin issues every month, the private Prague Mint remains firmly entrenched in the old ways while making reasonable use of the new.

Most of the Belarus recent commemorative coins have been struck at mints in Germany, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, and Switzerland. Nonetheless their national bank is looking to negotiate a contract with the Prague Mint in the Czech Republic due to “vigorous development of the [Belarus] numismatic market.”
