Czech tennis stars Navratilova, Kodes to appear on coins

November 13th, 2017

Czech Wimbledon winners Martina Navratilova and Jan Kodes are the first tennis champions to appear on commemorative coins whose gypsum models the Ceska mincovna (Czech Mint) unveiled on Monday. The mint itself will take place in Jablonec nad Nisou, north Bohemia, in early 2018. "One can perhaps dream of being on a postage stamp, but being on a coin is truly special," Navratilova said. Navratilova, a U.S. citizen, is a nine-time Wimbledon winner (in 1978-1990). She defected from the Communist Czechoslovakia to the USA in 1975. Kodes won the Wimbledon tournament in 1973.
