Czech Lion 2021

World investment 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 Czech Mint's silver coin, which is minted in top-quality proof and which bears a unique security hologram, is one kilogram.

In the Middle Ages, when all coins were made of precious metals, mint masters feared counterfeiters who imitated their work in order to enrich themselves. Indeed, the penalties were severe at the time and most of the criminals caught died. Although it is highly unlikely that anyone would attempt to counterfeit contemporary coins, there is never enough caution, therefore, the Czech Mint have 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 an ornamental 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. 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 and cannot be reliably replicated. The hologram itself 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 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...

The reverse side of the coin is dominated by
the Czech lion in an unusually realistic rendition with the St. Wenceslas Crown on its head. An integral part of the reverse 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 license 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 80 DOLLARS (NZD) and the year of issue 2021.

The coin is stored in a luxurious
wooden case along with a booklet that will introduce you the CZECH SECURITY CHECK and the history of coin counterfeiting... In our offer you can also find other variants of the "Czech Lion" investment coin made of silver and gold. This allows you to easily regulate how much money you invest into 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 with 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 world's largest online precious metals distributor 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 bullion coins of foreign mints are minted in the millions, the issuance 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...
