Cubism in czech architecture

The final platinum coin of the Czech Mint's four-part series entitled Cubism in czech architecture commemorates the Prague cubist lamp.

The cubist lamp
standing in an inconspicuous part of Prague's Jungmann square, which was created in 1912 as part of the project of the Adam's Pharmacy House, is the work of architect Emil Králíček. The atypical column made of artificial stone has a cubistically arched shaft formed by a series of superimposed comical needles, which are covered by a simple sculptural decor of alternating grooved and smooth triangles. While the column widens into a low seat at the bottom, it is topped by a lantern of metal and glass, and it has a cubist shape.

The coin is the work of the medal makers
MgA. Josef Oplištil and MgA. Petra Čánská. The reverse side is dominated by the Prague lamp in all its glory. The inscriptions KUBISTICKÁ LAMPA and EMIL KRÁLÍČEK are incorporated into the polished surface representing the light of the lantern. All this is framed by cubist ornaments. Cubist elements are also presented on the obverse side of the coin, which is common to the entire series. As the coins of the Czech Mint are issued with the licence of a foreign issuer, which is the island of Niue, the obverse side bears its necessary attributes - the nominal value of 50 DOLLARS (NZD), the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and the year of issue 2022.

The platinum coins of the Czech Mint, which include a special certificate of authenticity, feature three more Prague cubist landmarks -
the House of the Black Mother of God, Ďáblický Cemetery and Kovařovic's Villa.
