Commemorative coin

This silver commemorative coin (nominal value CZK 200) was issued by the Czech National Bank in 2009 to mark the 400th anniversary of the death of the renowned Jewish scholar Rabbi Judah Loew (Löw) ben Bezalel. The embossed depiction on the obverse side contains four inset Stars of David with the dates of pogroms against Jews in the Czech lands. The reverse side features the figure of the Golem on the base of a Hebrew text from the Talmud which is turned upside down. According to the designer, placing the text upside down conveys a view back to the history of the local Jewish community.
