The Czech koruna is the official currency of the Czech Republic. The official currency symbol; Kč. The Czech koruna replaced the Czechoslovak koruna in 1993, as a result of the Czechoslovakia dissolution. The first coins introduced were in denominations 10, 20, and 50 haléřů, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 korun. In 2000, new 10 and 20 korun coins were introduced, and the 10 and 20 haléřů coins were withdrawn in 2003, followed by the 50-haléřů coin in 2008. Since 1997, collector sets with proof-quality coins have been released once a year. There is also a numismatic tradition of issuing commemorative coins, including silver and gold coins.
The 200 Czech korun coin front design features the National Coat of Arms surrounded by the country’s name and the issue date. The reverse of the coin illustrates the facade of the Rudolfinum building located in Prague (Capital city), which presents a stylized musical still life in the center of the building. This coin is part of the 1996 commemorative series ‘’100th Anniversary of the Foundation of the Czech Philharmonic’’. Its rim is plain and milled, and its color is silver.
