“Jachimov, with its historical significance, transcends most of the cities of the region. And was the coveted commodity, a coin that gave its name to all silver coins of this type, “said John Netwood.
“By 1528, during Aligov’s glory, they made huge profits, and nothing for the royal crown. Three and a quarter million silver dollars and twenty-two million broc crochet were printed,” excavates the NetWatt.
How the dollar became a dollar
What can readers of the collection read? At the beginning of the second quarter of the 16th century, historian and numismatist Peter Worrell answered the question of why large silver coins became known as the dollar, and why the newly formed United States chose the word dollar as the name of its currency.
John Networth described the beginnings of Juchimo, Vladimir Horak described the city as the cradle of a silver dollar, and Jakimov’s miners’ role in mining Juchimo’s silver ore. Roman Javorel of Charles University discovered how the Juchimov dollar stands in terms of purchasing power. Archaeologist Philip Brigap focused on the history of the Braitenstein Castle, which was built shortly after the beginning of the mining of rich silver-bearing ores.
Archaeologist Ondiz Malina describes the Zuchimov landscape in relation to the “Silver Fever” and its pulse through archaeological eyes, even with numerous documentary photographs. An example is the moat leading to Heinz Pond above the right bank of the Eliske Brook Valley. A collection of lectures from the Symposium to mark the 500th anniversary of the Zuchimov Dollar was published by the Karlovy Vary Museum and sponsored by the City of Zuchimov.
