We are approaching the last prints of a series of commemorative banknotes that STC is issuing in collaboration with Prague Zoo. The collection of three banknotes with symbolic values of 100, 500 and 1,000 Troy tolars marks the 90th anniversary of the foundation of Prague Zoo. On the obverse of the banknotes you will find some of the most popular animals, quite literally icons of Prague Zoo, Meloun the seal, Richard the gorilla and Gulab the elephant. The artwork was designed by sculptor Štěpán Kotrba.
A total of three commemorative notes will be issued in a set, which you will be able to purchase from 28 September 2021 in the STC e-Shop. We recommend that you follow our issue plan, where you will soon find more detailed technical specifications of the entire set. By purchasing the product, you will be contributing to a good cause. Part of the proceeds will be used to save endangered animal species in projects in situ.
We are sure that these original banknotes will not only delight supporters of zoos and animal lovers, but also collectors, who will appreciate the original preparation of printed designs and the use of some security features that can be found on current Czech banknotes.
