About coins

Coins with characters from the Kajko and Kokosz comic book series

Kajko and Kokosz - a series of comics by Janusz Christa, which became his most popular work. The heroes of the comic are the titular Kajko and Kokosz, two Slavic warriors living in the town of castellan Mirmił. Their main enemies are the Robbers under the command of the Hegemon and his second-in-command Corporal. Other important characters in the comic include: Mirmiła's wife, Lubawa, the little Dragon Miluś, the witch Jaga and her husband, the thug Łamignat, and the sloppy robber Oferma.

The idea for coins with Kajko and Kokosz was born in 2022. The Mint of Gdańsk was the only one in the world to receive the right to issue collector coins with the image of Janusz Christa's work. 

On May 10, 2023, the premiere of the first coins in the series took place.

Silver collector coins are characterized by a very high relief and interesting additions. Each coin is packed with a certificate of authenticity in an elegant box. Collector coins are also characterized by a limited mintage, emphasizing their uniqueness. Expenses will never be increased.

Coins from the "Kajko and Kokosz" series are full-fledged coins - they have a denomination and a government guarantee. Due to the Polish law, only the National Bank of Poland has the ability to issue coins with the currency denominated in PLN. For this reason, our coins are denominated in Fijian Dollars, and their authenticity and legality are guaranteed by the Fijian Government, which is why the obverse of the coins must be written in English.

The following versions will appear in the series:

  • Silver, 2 oz Ag - 4 coins
  • Silver, 200 g Ag - 1 coin
  • Silver, 1 oz and 2 oz Ag BU - 5 coins
