Czech Lion 2021

The Czech Mint introduced the investment coins entitled Czech Lion in 2017 and they soon ranked alongside their famous world counterparts with great success. Their popularity is due, among other things, to the elaborate patriotic relief, which has evolved into several variants over time. In 2021, one of them is a five-ounce silver coin minted in an unusual "reverse proof" design.

The coin is usually minted in one of two versions - standard or proof. You know the quality
standard well, for example, from the circulation coins that jingle in your wallets - their surface is completely matt. Regarding coins minted in quality proof, only the relief is matt and the rest of the coin - i.e. the coin surface - is mirror-glossy. However, there is another variant, which is called "reverse proof". This is, as its name suggests, the opposite of the quality proof - the surface of such coins is matt and the mirror shine is applied to the raised relief.

The reverse side of the coin is dominated by
Czech Lion in an unusually realistic rendering with the St. Wenceslas Crown on its head. The obverse side presents an eagle on the shield that is a synthesis of the St. Wenceslas, Moravian and Silesian bird of prey. The author of the relief is traditionally the medal maker Asamat Baltaev, DiS. Since the coins of the Czech Mint are licensed by a foreign issuer, which is the island of Niue, their obverse side bears its necessary attributes - the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the nominal value of 10 DOLLARS (NZD) and the year of issue 2021.

The schedule of issuance of the special edition of investment coins numbers
500 pieces. In our offer you can also find other variants of Czech Lion made of silver and gold. This allows you to easily regulate how much money you invest in precious metals.
