The Czech Mint’s First-Ever Silver Bullion Coin
When The Czech Mint decided to strike its first-ever silver bullion coin, it settled upon a dynamic theme for its initial entry to put forth on the world stage: the national symbol of the Czech Republic itself, a regal-looking double-tailed lion! The heraldic beast can now be part of your collection with this spectacular coin struck in two full ounces of highly pure 99.9% fine silver!
Crown Your Collection With the Bohemian Lion
The design on this coin seems to bound from its surface. It shows a proud, heavily maned lion represent power and sovereignty. Atop its tawny head rests the Crown of Saint Wenceslas, a crown that forms part of the Bohemian Crown Jewels. Bohemia is now part of the Czech Republic and the Bohemian Crown Jewels are stored in an undisclosed location within Prague’s St. Vitus Cathedral. The vault is sealed with seven locks whose keys are held by seven different government and religious officials. The final design element is a sprig from a Linden Tree, the Czech Republic’s national tree.
The lion became part of Bohemian heraldry thank to the legendary story of Prince Bruncvik. According to the tale, Bruncvik was a mythical prince who traveled to Africa, where he helped a lion defeat a dragon. It’s one of the most famous stories of how the exotic lion became symbol of the Czech Republic. And, while a decidedly Czech theme, this coin is actually $5 legal Tender in Niue, a small island nation in the South Pacific Ocean that licensed that these coins be struck by the Czech Mint.
