The obverse of the medal bears a composition of heraldic animals which evokes the state emblem. The relief of these heraldic beasts was taken from a fragment of the original Gothic paving in one of the halls of Prague Castle. Sunken into the enlarged off-centre minting edge there appears, in circumscription, the following text: ZEMĚ KORUNY ČESKÉ - 1300 – 2000 (THE LANDS OF THE CZECH CROWN – 1300 -2000). The reverse of the medal is a quotation of the Prague gros. The middle part contains the symbol of King Wenceslas II. Similarly as the obverse, the reverse, too, shows a text sunken into the enlarged off-centre minting edge; it runs: MINCOVNÍ REFORMA VÁCLAVA II. - PRAŽSKÝ GROŠ (MINTING REFORM OF WENCESLAS II – PRAGUE GROS).
