Czech Lion 2022

The world's bullion coins tend to be dedicated to strong national symbols and the "Czech Lion", the first coin of its kind to be minted for the Czech market, is no exception. The weight of the silver coin of the Czech Mint with the year 2022, which is minted in top-quality proof and which bears a unique security hologram, is three kilograms.

In the Middle Ages, when all coins were made of precious metals, mintmasters feared counterfeiters who imitated their work to enrich themselves. Indeed, the penalties were severe at the time and most of the criminals died. 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 solution is a security feature 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. Like the coin itself, 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. Furthermore, you can 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 easily replicated. The hologram was produced by the highly specialised Czech company IQ Structures, which is one of the world leaders in holographic technology. It is also extremely technologically demanding 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...

All variants of the bullion coin were
reworked in 2022, but the main idea remained the same. The reverse side is dominated by the Czech lion in an unusually realistic rendition with the St. Wenceslas crown on its head. The embossed hologram is an integral part of the reverse side.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 attributes - the name and portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the nominal value of 240 DOLLARS (NZD) and the year of issue 2022.

The coin is stored in a luxurious
wooden etui together with a booklet that will show you the CZECH SECURITY CHECK security feature and the history of coin counterfeiting... In our offer you can also find other variants of the bullion coin "Czech Lion" made of silver and gold. This allows you to easily regulate how much money you deposit in precious metals.

The Czech Mint
has extensive experience in the production of bullion coins. Since 2017, it has been minting gold and silver "Czech Lion" coins, which 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 distributor of precious metals in the world has also requested them for its offer. One of the reasons why the Czech Mint's investment 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 investment 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, to the birth of a child or just for fun...
