Coinage on the occasion of introducing a unified European currency and accession of the Czech Republic to the European Union.

The type contains the names EUROPA - ZEUS. The reverse depicts the plan of the legendary labyrinth in the Cretan Knossos traditionally connected with the cult of the bull. In the center of the labyrinth is the marking of the coin´s nominal (DMS = 244). Around the labyrinth we read the type LABYRINTOS and in the exergue the initials of the engraver PS.
