Special Cyril and Methodius coin minted by CNB

The Czech National Bank has minted a commemorative gold coin worth 10,000 crowns for the 1,150th anniversary of the arrival of Saints Cyril and Methodius in Great Moravia. The bank will release 11,000 coins for sale on July 3rd. The coin weighs one Troy ounce and depicts the two saints on one side, and on the other the Great Moravian prince Rostislav, upon whose request Cyril and Methodius arrived in his kingdom in 863 from Constantinople to evangelize his subjects and subsequently translate the Bible into Old Church Slavonic.
