The hoard of Prague groschen was discovered by chance at the Krzywa Street in Wodzisław (Jędrzejowski County, Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship, Poland) in 1949. Three ceramic vessels were found filled with silver and copper coins. The vessels were located close to each other but due to the accidental nature of the find and its theft by the labourers at the construction site, it was not possible to determine whether these containers were part of a single large hoard or three different ones. Among the coins, there were also 39 Prague groschen of Charles IV and Wenceslaus IV, which originally could have created a separate deposit. Some of them – 34 specimens – were published in 1966 by Teofila Opozda in the Wiadomości Numizmatyczne (vol. X, pp. 108–111). Since the time of this brief study, new and much more precise typologies of the issues of both rulers have been developed. In the presented article, we managed to process all the 39 Prague groschen and determine their chronology, along with the terminus post quem of the entire hoard.
