that minted gold is a traditional term used in precious metals management for gold in the form of coins, medals and other minted forms other than coins (medallions, tokens, plaques, religious medals, orders and awards)? Although the word “minted” refers to the historically most common production technology, such items can also be made by casting, engraving, smithery or galvanoplasty, for example.
In November 2013, the Czech National Bank decided to use the koruna exchange rate as an additional instrument for easing the monetary conditions. Since then, the Bank Board has repeatedly confirmed the validity of this exchange rate commitment. At its most recent meeting on 5 May 2016, the Bank Board stated again 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 mid-2017.
