This set features four silver half-ounce coins dedicated to the Lords of Pernštejn noble family.

The Pernštejns were at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries one of the most powerful and at the same time one of the richest lineages in the country and always played an important role in the politics of the Kingdom of Bohemia.

The first written mention of the Lords of Pernštejn is from the 13th century in the region of southern Moravia. Their admirable creative energy and determination was soon the cause of big influence on the development of the Kingdom and their exceptional fortune. In eastern Bohemia they had a major impact on the economy and even the landscape - they founded a system of ponds and irrigation ditches, many of which still exist today. The Pernštejns were also renowned for their longevity and fertility. Despite this fact, the male line of the family died out in 1631, followed fifteen years later by the last female member. Their heirs became the Lobkowiczs.
