The Czech Lion became a national symbol of political authority and unity during the reign of Ottokar II, King of Bohemia — which used to encompass Czech territory — during the mid-13th century and also known as the Iron and Golden King. He inherited it from his predecessors in the Pemyslid Dynasty and marked its first unambiguously recorded historical usage, though many other myths and legends purport to explain its significance. The Czech Mint has featured this leonine symbolism on a number of popular collectibles since 2017, now including the 2022 Niue Czech Lion Silver 1 Kilo Silver Coin from the Czech Mint.

Highlights:

  • Arrives in a secure plastic capsule!
  • Issued in 2022!
  • Limited mintage of just 500 pieces worldwide!
  • Contains 1 Kilo, 32.15 Troy oz, of .999 pure silver.
  • Face value of $80 (NZD) backed by the government of Niue.
  • Obverse side features a heraldic eagle and an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse side features a Czech Lion rendered by Asamat Baltaev.

The 2022 Niue Czech Lion Silver Coin comes in brilliant uncirculated quality, showcasing its original-mint luster. The team at Provident Metals fully insures every shipment against any possibility of loss or damage, and it comes in a secure plastic capsule. Due to the limited supply, ordering early is highly recommended.

Obverse

The coin’s obverse side pairs a heraldic eagle with a legal tender effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This is accompanied by inscriptions of the Queen’s name, the face value, and the year and country of issue.

Reverse

Asamat Baltaev’s portrait of the Czech Lion is featured on the coin’s reverse side wearing the St. Wenceslas Crown. The inscription “Ceska Republika” appears at the lower rim, flanked by decorative leaves.

History

Myths, legends, and various chronicles try to explain the importance of the lion as a symbol of the Czech nation and culture. One popular medieval chronicle attributes it to Prince Vladislaus II being awarded a crown by Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa. On that crown, the lion as a crest animal represented the virtues of chivalry, strength, and courage: all qualities attributed to Vladislav while in the Emperor’s service at the Battle of Milan. Whether or not that particular story is true, the lion’s symbolic importance in Czech tradition is undeniable.
