Exhibitions of historical mints

Visitors have the opportunity to enter into a historical mint accompanied by a guide in the basement of the Renaissance palace on the IV castle courtyard.

Functional replicas of Renaissance minting machines await here. They were created according to historical sources by the artistic blacksmith Jiří Jurda. The complete process of production of coins, which were made use of in the Renaissance, can be demonstrated on these machines. These also serve to relate everything from the first rolled tin through the cutting, the imprinting and the folding of the edges up to the weighing. The results of these procedures can be judged by visitors when viewing the hundreds of original coins which consist of part of the exhibitions.
