Commemorative Banknote “Glory to Ukraine” Issued in the Czech Republic
The Czech Republic has issued a collectible banknote called Sláva Ukrajině.
The design of the banknote is the work of award-winning printmaker and illustrator Eva Hašková, who has already worked on commemorative banknotes in the past, such as one depicting the First Republic Finance Minister Alois Rašín.
The front of the banknote displays the statue of Beregini on Independence Square in Kyiv. On the back, you can see Ukrainian flags and the oldest church in Kiev – St. Sophia Cathedral.
This is a charity project. All proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Post Bellum organization, which is raising funds to help the people of Ukraine.
The 20,000 banknotes were created by the coin maker České dukáty and the State Printing Works of Securities (STC).
The cost of a single banknote is 1500 CZK and you can buy it here
