MARCH 21 – 22, 2025

Hotel Olympik Praha

The biggest spring meeting of collectors will take place from 22 to 23 March at the Olympik**** Hotel in Prague. More than eighty dealers from all over Europe will be there.

Visitors will be offered stamps, coins, banknotes, medals, postcards and other collectors’ material, including tools for collectors.

The stand will be selling a new nine-block imprint with the motif of the legendary Jawa 250 “Perak” motorcycle, which celebrates 70 years of production in 2024. The author of the drawing as well as the stamp is the artist Petr Ptacek. The commemorative sheet issued by the Czech Post consists of nine “transport” postage stamps (also designed by Petr Ptáček) with the nominal “A” and it is the “V” variant printed in the postage stamp printing plant in Hradištko town.

Postcards, commemorative prints and tin signs will also be on sale at the stand.

You can meet Petr Ptáček at the fair on Friday 22 March from 15:00 at the autograph session.

Jawa 250 “Perak” is often referred to as the most famous domestic motorcycle. It was developed secretly during the Second World War. After that it went into mass production and became one of the most popular motorcycles in Czechoslovakia. But it was also a success abroad – at the 33rd World War II. It won a gold medal at the 33rd Paris Motor Show.

The “Perak” was very popular thanks to its compact layout and timeless design. The motorcycle was equipped with a 248.5 cc air-cooled two-stroke petrol engine. It had an output of 9 hp (6.6 kW) and could travel at speeds of up to 100 km/h. The “Perak” was then the predecessor of another famous model – the Jawa 250 “Kyvacka”.

On the first day of the fair, a new 0 euro souvenir banknote – “50 years of the metro” – will be premiered, which the Sberatel Fair is issuing in cooperation with the Prague Transport Company.

In 2024, the Prague metro will celebrate its 50th anniversary since its opening. The first line C, connecting Florenc with Kačerov, was opened on 9 May 1974 and has since become an indispensable part of Prague’s transport. In its history, the metro has carried over 5 billion passengers and today it is the fifth busiest metro in Europe.

The original C line has since grown into three lines with a total of 61 stations and a length of 65.4 km. Line D is currently under construction and will extend the metro network by a further 10.4 km and 16 stations when it is completed in 2029.

A new collector’s note from the painter Václav Zapadlík “Gold Collection” will also be on sale, this time with the motif of the Bugatti Royale 41 from 1934. The same motif also appeared on a postage stamp from Czech Post in 2012 as part of the “World Cars stamp booklet”.

The Bugatti Royale 41, also known as the Bugatti Type 41, was a luxury automobile produced by the French automaker Bugatti between 1927 and 1933. Only 7 were produced (!), one of which was destroyed in a crash. The car was designed to be the largest and most luxurious automobile in the world and was to be sold only to European royalty. However, due to the economic crisis at the time, only three examples were sold.

A postcard, commemorative print and a tin sign will also be available to accompany the new edition at the stand.

A second 2 Euro coin with a local motif will also go on sale at the spring Sberatel Fair. This time it will be “fried cheese”.

Two Euro coins that have not been circulated (uncirculated) with a printed motif are starting to become a separate collector’s category in the world. There are already several dozen different designs.

The first Czech “two-euro coin” was issued on the occasion of the Sberatel Christmas Fair. Its motif was “Czech beer”. And since it sold out quickly, collectors who did not get enough but would like to have a complete series of all four coins will have the opportunity to buy a new issue of the 2 Euro “Czech beer” at the spring Sberatel Fair, which will have a differently placed Czech flag to distinguish it from the very first one.

The issue has the unifying title of NATIONAL TREASURES and represents phenomena typical of Czech general culture.

The authors of the series thus want to inspire Czech legislators with a bit of hyperbole, when they contemplate the motif of the Czech euro sometime in the future…

Each coin will be issued in an edition of 200 and will be sold in a square blister only at the Sberatel fairs.

The German Post will bring its complete range of stamps to the spring Sberatel fair. Plus a commemorative postcard directly for the fair.

A new booklet of custom stamps issued on the 75th birthday of paleontological legend Philip J. Currie will also make its premiere at the spring Sberatel. He is the author of hundreds of articles and fourteen popular science books. During his long scientific career, he discovered and described over 70 species of dinosaurs.

The most famous of these appear on the stamps in his scrapbook, and his cover features a Philovenator Curriei named directly after its discoverer. The drawings are by Currie’s friend and long-time collaborator Jan Sovák.

The Fauna – Flora Society of the SČF will also offer an interesting new service for collectors. It has purchased a franking machine „Neopost“ like those used by the post office or large companies. But this one should serve collectors.

An postmark with the fair logo and other motifs should be available at the Spring Sberatel.

There will also be the popular valuation of collections, which will be handled by experts from the Association of Czech Philatelists, the Czech Numismatic Society, the Autograph Collectors Club, the Curiosity Collectors Club and the Antik Kureš company.

Nearly 80 exhibitors from all over Europe take part in the fair.

Autograph sessions of famous stamp and medal artists.

Spring Sberatel Fair will be the largest spring gathering of collectors from all disciplines.

A postcard dedicated to the popular Czech band Tata Bojs premiered at the  Spring Sberatel 2019.

The hit of the successful Spring Sberatel 2019 was the stamp album of singer Freddie Mercury. It was loaned to Prague by the British Postal Museum and the museum’s curator Stuart Aitken (pictured) came along. This year, a rare original letter addressed to Bomi Bulsara, Freddie Mercury’s father, will be on display.
