CoinFive Dollars Gold 2015 Czech Traditions - Masopust

This coin was issued as part of a six-coin gold proof set by the Czech Mint, featuring Czech traditions recognised by the UNESCO Heritage List. It is in the signature "gold ducat" format of the mint, which is slightly heavier than a tenth-ounce.

The Mint says about the coin:
The UNESCO organisation protects not only cities, national parks and other places of interest that have tangible form. There is also a list that contains the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. And the Czechs certainly have something to say about that! Our colourful history has created a series of unique cultural idiosyncrasies, and we have expanded the list by six exceptional traditions.

This coin is dedicated to the Masopust (Easter) carnival parade in costumes in the Hlinec region. The cheerful tradition dating back to the 19th century was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2010.

Obverse

In the upper left part of the obverse, the coin shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits. There are no designer's initials below the effigy.

The portrait is surrounded by a small beaded circle, below which is the date 2015 and the Queen's legend, ELIZABETH II.. The centre is surrounded by a large beaded circle, decorated on the right with a floral wreath. Below, the mint mark of the Czech Mint - a crowned monogram of the letters ČM (Česká mincovna).

Around above right in the outer rim, NIUE ISLAND · 5 DOLLARS. Around below, INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE - CZECH REPUBLIC.
