Czech Lion 2022

World bullion coins are usually dedicated to strong national symbols and the "Czech Lion", which is the first coin of its kind intended for the Czech market, is no exception. The weight of the unique 2022 coin, which is supplemented with a unique security hologram, is five kilograms, making it the largest silver coin minted by the Czech Mint.

All coins were made of precious metals in the Middle Ages, therefore, mintmasters were afraid of counterfeiters who imitated their work to enrich themselves. Indeed, the penalties for counterfeits were severe at the time and most of the criminals lost their lives. Although it is highly unlikely that anyone would attempt to counterfeit contemporary coins, the Czech Mint has come up with innovative solutions. The Czech Mint's latest security feature was named CZECH SECURITY CHECK. It is an embossed hologram in the shape of a shield placed at the bottom of the reverse side of the coin. This hologram is not only a protective but also a decorative element. It is dedicated to the depiction of the Czech lion by the medal maker Asamat Baltaev, DiS. You do not need any specialised equipment to see the CZECH SECURITY CHECK - it is visible to the naked eye. You can then examine it with simple, commonly available tools - a magnifying glass and a sharp spot light provided by, for example, a lit flash of a mobile phone. When illuminated from a certain angle, a hidden "moving" pattern will appear in the shield. While it is very easy to observe a holographic shield, it is extremely difficult to produce it and it cannot be reliably replicated. The hologram is the work of the highly specialised Czech company IQ Structures, which is one of the world leaders in holographic technology. It is also extremely technologically difficult to emboss the hologram in precious metal so that all its special effects - kinetic or colour - are preserved. This is the task of the Czech Mint...

The reverse side of the coin is dominated by a Czech lion in an unusually realistic rendition with the St. Wenceslas Crown placed on its head. An integral part of the reverse side is an embossed hologram. The obverse side presents an eagle on the shield, which is a synthesis of the St. Wenceslas, Moravian and Silesian bird of prey. 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 400 DOLLARS (NZD) and the year of issue 2022.

The coin is set in a special protective capsule and stored in a luxurious wooden case. In our offer you can also find other variants of the bullion coin "Czech Lion" made of silver and gold. This allows you to regulate easily how much money you deposit in precious metals.

The Czech Mint
has extensive experience in the production of 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 bullion coins have so quickly taken their place alongside 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...
