Dog Breeds

The fifth silver coin of the Czech Mint from the Dog Breeds series is dedicated to the Weimaraner pointer.

Pointers
, which were bred for hunting, were mainly used in hunting grounds where small game was present. They were used for this purpose because of their exceptional ability, called displaying or staging: the Pointer follows the scent trail and when it sniffs the hunted animal, it does not attack, but stands in a typical stance. It straightens its tail, raises its front leg and keeps its eyes fixed on the hidden prey, which the hunters with the net then approach and capture. This genetically fixed behaviour, which is reinforced by training, comes from the ancient ancestor of all Pointers - the Spanish pointer that lived in the 16th century but became extinct. Although today's pointers share a common ancestor, they are a diverse group with different sizes, colours and coat types.

The reverse side of the coin, which is the work of medal maker
MgA. Martin Dašek, bears two depictions of the Pointer. The first one is coloured and represents a short-haired Weimaraner. The second one that is in relief, presents a dog with a duck in its mouth - pointers are also good at retrieving hunted game. The composition is supplemented with a bilingual inscription VÝMARSKÝ OHAŘ – WEIMARANER. As the coins of the Czech Mint are issued with a foreign licence from the island of Niue, they bear the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the face value of 1 DOLLAR (NZD) and the year of issue 2022 on the obverse side. These attributes are supplemented with a number of footprints - human and canine.

All twelve coins from the Dog Breeds series can be stored in a
collector's book which can also be found in the Czech Mint's offer.
