On 12 December 2018 the Czech National Bank is putting into circulation a CZK 200 commemorative silver coin to mark the 300th anniversary of the death of Jan Brokoff. The coin is minted from an alloy containing 925 parts silver and 75 parts copper and is issued in two versions, normal quality and proof quality, which differ in surface treatment and edge marking. Proof-quality coins have a highly polished field, a matt relief and a plain edge with the inscription in Czech “ČESKÁ NÁRODNÍ BANKA * Ag 0.925 * 13 g *”. Normal quality coins have milled edges. The coin is 31 mm in diameter, weighs 13 g and is 2.35 mm thick. As with any other coins, deviations in diameter of 0.1 mm and thickness of 0.15 mm are allowed. Upward deviations in weight of 0.26 g and silver content of 1% are permitted.
The obverse side of the coin features a statue of Saint John of Nepomuk on a pedestal in the centre of the coin field. Written around the outer circle of the halo is the name of the state “ČESKÁ REPUBLIKA”. The denomination and abbreviated monetary unit “200 Kč” are located near the left-hand lower edge of the coin. The mark of the Czech Mint, in the form of the letters “Č” and “M”, is situated to the right of the pedestal. The reverse side of the coin features the vertical text “JAN BROKOFF” in the middle of the coin field, supplemented in the upper part with a circular composition with the years “1718” and “2018”. The text and the years are accompanied by period decoration with baroque details. The mark of the designer of the coin Asamat Baltaev can be found near the left-hand lower edge of the coin.
Each coin comes with a catalogue card in white marble print containing a description and the relief of the coin.
