As we know concerning Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia, Bavaria and France, Charles IV. did not have any other medals, we have all,” Bašeová said.

Family collection contains such unique objects as The Astrological medal from 1711, The Suit medal minted between years 1964 – 1698 or medals of all faculty of Charles University. “The most difficult was the faculty of medicine, fortunately I realized that a dean is my former colleague but I had to deserve it. All my medals, together 650, I had to lend to Carolinum at the exhibition 650 years of Charles University,” proud collector reminds.

Due to a priceless value, Mrs. Bašeová is still asked for sale by many business men. “The highest offer was from Japan but we do not sell, only change. One of our medal they paid really well, not by money but by antique coins which were finally quite invaluable, around hundred Czech crowns per one,” collector smiles. Mrs. Maria managed to change them for others she missed.

Thanks to 700the anniversary of Charles IV., the collections were invited on many significant celebrations. Medals and other objects will be showed in Charles University, National museum or Kremnica Mint.
