It is the only (!) coin in circulation in Czech history with denomination in the Czech language: MALEY GROSS or MALEI GROSS (otherwise Latin and partly German were usually used). It is also interesting that the denomination of the coin literally means ´small big´. The word MALEY means small in Czech and the word GROSS means big in Latin.Apart from the common small Groschens gold samples and multiples were occasionally struck. These include a thick small Groschen silver clipped square planchets gold samples of various weights gold New Year´s coin with text collar ZVM NEVEN IAHR 1606 and gold clipped square planchets.
