Product description

The five-year cycle of silver coins of the Czech National Bank with a nominal value of 500 CZK, which commemorates famous means of transport, presents its second issue. The proof coin with the year 2022 is dedicated to the JAWA 250 motorcycle type 353.

In the 1950s, in accordance with the central plan of the so-called
National Series, two of the most important Czechoslovak manufacturers - JAWA (Production plants of 9th May, national enterprise) and ČZM (České závody motocyklové, national enterprise) - were to participate in the development of motorcycles of uniform design of all volume classes under the joint brand JAWA-ČZ. ČZM was in charge of the 125, 150 and 175 cc classes, while JAWA was in charge of the 250 and 350 cc classes - mainly to ensure that the two manufacturers did not compete with each other. The JAWA 250 Type 353 differed from its predecessor, the legendary post-war "Pérák", by a number of improvements. Its distinctive feature was the rear swingarm, which the previous machines did not have and which earned the apt nickname. The "Kývačka" was not only powerful and reliable, but also elegant - in red with gold lines, and exported to 120 foreign countries...

The author of the commemorative coin is the medal maker
Petra Brodská, DiS. The expert committee of the Czech National Bank was particularly impressed by the "perfect representation of the motorcycle and its parts". While the obverse side of the coin presents an image of Kývačka from the side and above, the reverse side features a three-quarter view of the motorcycle accompanied by technical diagrams. The use of red enamel distinguishes this issue from conventional silver coins  and gives selected parts of the motorcycle an authentic look.
