$35.00 CAD

Presenting the beautiful and low mintage 2017 Czech Lion which is the first bullion coin minted by the Czech Mint in a series called the Czech Nationhood.

The reverse design is that of a proud and intricately fashioned lion, guarding the crown and shield of of St. Wenceslas; the lion is easily identified as the herald who features on the Czech coat of arms, and is the only lion with two tails. The Czech lion is joined on the reverse by the coin's weight and purity, as well as the Czech legend.

The coin's obverse features an equally detailed rendering of Elizabeth II in profile, set over another recognizable symbol of the Czech nation, the linden branch. Also on the obverse, Elizabeth II's name, the Niue Island legend, the coin's year of release and its denominational value.

The esteemed designer of this coin's immaculate features, Jaroslav Bejvl, passed away shortly before completion of the design, at the age of 75, after which the design was finalized by the skilled young artist, Asamat Baltaev. 

The Czech Lion is a guaranteed issue of the Czech Mint and each coin delivers in a plastic protective pouch.
