Apart from the regular circulation coinage of the country, the Czech Mint also issues a variety of non-circulating commemorative coins in precious metals. One of the formats used for these is the 500 Korun coin minted in 25 grams of sterling silver

The Mint says about this coin:
This is the second coin in a series which commemorates famous means of transport, and is dedicated to the Jawa 250 motorcycle type 353.

The Jawa (pronounced Yava) 250 Type 353 motorcycle was created as part of the so-called Unified or National Series, which was the result of central planning in the 1950s. It inherited from its predecessor, which was the legendary post-war Jawa 250 "Pérák", a simple two-stroke engine with a volume of 250 cc, but its frame had a completely new design. The distinctive feature of the motorcycle became the rear swing arm, which the previous models did not have and which earned the appropriate nickname. “Kývačka“ (the "swing arm").

It was produced between 1954 and 1962, and was a huge sales success not only at home but also abroad. It was exported to 120 countries around the world, thanks to its excellent design, high utility value and attractive appearance. The red motorcycles with gold lines still attract attention on the roads today.
