The “Czech Liona” - a series of investment coins minted with a foreign license by the Czech Mint - were first issued in 2017, and each year after that with a new design. This is a complete set of the seven gold formats for the year 2020.
Investment coins, as their name suggests, impress especially investors who know that an elaborated portfolio can not exist without precious metals. However, the Czech lions also boast collecting value and there are collectors who want to collect all available variants. Therefore, in this set box you will find coins weighing one kilogram, ten troy ounces, five troy ounces, one troy ounce, one half of a troy ounce, one quarter of a troy ounce and one twenty-fifth of a troy ounce of pure gold.
The Czech Mint reworked all variants of investment coins in 2020, but the main idea remained. In addition to the Czech lion in an non-traditionally realistic presentation, the reverse sides of the gold coins present two other symbols of Czech statehood - the St Wenceslas crown on the head of a two-tailed beast, and an eagle on the shield, which is a synthesis of St Wenceslas, Moravian and Silesian birds of prey.
The coins were designed by medal maker Asamat Baltaev, DiS. The obverse sides bear the attributes of the island of Niue, which provides the Czech Mint with a foreign license to mint its own coins. These are the portrait and the name of Queen Elizabeth II, the year of the issue 2020 and individual nominal values in New Zealand dollars. All this is supplemented by linden branches.
