that commemorative coin designs are obtained almost exclusively in unlimited anonymous competitions? They are submitted as plaster models of about 20 cm in diameter, which are anonymously judged by the Commission for the Evaluation of Designs for Czech Banknotes and Coins. The Commission usually recommends the best design for realisation. The CNB Bank Board then makes the final decision.

The weakening of the koruna

Koruna In November 2013, the Czech National Bank decided to use the koruna exchange rate as an additional instrument for easing the monetary conditions. The Bank Board confirmed the validity of this exchange rate commitment in 2014 and 2015. At its most recent meeting on 4 February 2016, the Bank Board stated that the CNB would not discontinue the use of the exchange rate as a monetary policy instrument before 2017. The Bank Board considers it likely that the commitment will be discontinued in the first half of next year.
