On 18 September 2018 the Czech National Bank is putting into circulation the sixth gold coin from the Castles cycle. It features Rabí Castle. The coin is minted from 999.9 purity gold 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. Normal quality coins have milled edges. The coin is 28 mm in diameter, weighs 15.55 g and is 2 mm thick. Deviations in diameter of 0.1 mm and thickness of 0.15 mm are allowed. Upward deviations in weight of 0.062 g and in gold content of 0.01% are permitted.

The obverse side of the coin features an aerial view of the castle complex. Stylised heraldic animals from the large national coat-of-arms – the Czech lion, the Moravian eagle and the Silesian eagle – are located on bastions in the right half of the coin. The name of the state in Czech “ČESKÁ REPUBLIKA”, the denomination and abbreviated monetary unit “5000 Kč” and the name of the cycle “HRADY” are situated in the left half of the coin. The mark of the Czech Mint, in the form of the letters “Č” and “M”, is situated below the text “HRADY”. The reverse side of the coin depicts a detailed view of the remains of the castle buildings. The text “HRAD RABÍ” and the year of mintage “2018” are located in the lower left part of the coin. The mark of the designer of the coin Asamat Baltaev can be found below the year of mintage.
