Czech Lion 2022

The world's investment coins tend to be dedicated to strong national symbols and the "Czech Lion", which is the first coin of its kind to be minted for the Czech market, is no exception. The weight of the Czech Mint's 2022 gold coin, which boasts top-quality proof quality, is one-quarter of a troy ounce. 

The best-known story of how the exotic
lion became the symbol of the Czech land is the tale of Bruncvík - a mythical prince who travelled to distant Africa, where he helped the king of beasts in his battle with the lion sledge. A more plausible explanation is offered by the old chroniclers. According to them, Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa rewarded Prince Vladislaus II with a royal crown and a new crest animal, which replaced the existing eagle in 1158. The lion represented the virtues of chivalry, strength and courage that Vladislaus had shown during his conquest of the city of Milan in the Emperor's service. And how did the heraldic beast get its second tail? Heroism played a role again. King Ottokar I helped Emperor Otto IV in his fight against the Saxons iin 1204, and in return the Bohemian lion was given a second tail, which distinguished it from the beasts of other nations and gave it a unique prestige. Medieval writers, however, liked to colour their narratives, therefore, these are not a reliable source of information. Therefore, one thing is certain - the first truly documented Bohemian lion was a symbol of the Přemyslid dynasty and appears on the equestrian seal of Vladislaus Henry since 1203. The lion was elevated to the emblem of the whole country by Ottokar II, the Iron and Gold King.

All variants of the investment coin were r
eworked in 2022, but the main idea was preserved. The reverse side is dominated by the Czech lion in an unusually realistic rendition with the St. Wenceslas crown on its head. The obverse side presents the eagle, which is a synthesis of the St. Wenceslas, Moravian and Silesian birds of prey. The author of the relief is traditionally the medal maker Asamat Baltaev, DiS. As the coins of the Czech Mint are issued with the licence of a foreign issuer, which is the island of Niue, their obverse side bears its necessary elements - the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the nominal value of 10 DOLLARS (NZD) and the year of issue 2022.

Invest in a smart, stylish manner and without VAT! In our offer you can also find other variants of the investment coin "Czech Lion" made of gold and silver. This allows you to easily regulate how much money you invest in precious metals.

The Czech Mint has extensive experience in the production of investment coins (so called bullion coins). We have been minting gold and silver "Czech Lion" coins since 2017 and they are popular among investors not only in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, but also in Hungary, Germany, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Canada and the United States. The largest online precious metals distributor in the world has also requested them for its offer. One of the reasons why the Czech Mint's investment coins have so quickly joined their famous global counterparts (such as the Austrian Wiener Philharmoniker, Canadian Maple Leaf, South African Krugerrand, American Eagle, Chinese Panda or Australian Kangaroo) is their low mintage. While bullion coins of foreign mints are minted in the millions, the issue limit of coins minted in the Czech Republic is calculated in hundreds or thousands. This fact increases the appreciation potential of the investment and adds a collector's dimension to it.Thanks to the artistic processing, the coins will also serve perfectly as an original and valuable gift - for graduation, for a wedding, for the birth of a child or just for fun...
