The Czech Republic does not have its own purely investment issues, therefore the Czech Mint strikes bullion coins with a foreign license. The “Czech Lions” come with a new design every year, and you will find a compact set of five silver issues of various weights in the luxurious set with the year 2020.
Investment coins, as their name suggests, are popular especially among investors who know that an elaborated portfolio can not miss precious metals. Czech Lions, however, also offer collectible value. There are collectors who want to own all available variants. Therefore, in a common box you will find coins weighing one kilogram, ten troy ounces, five troy ounces, two troy ounces (in “piedfort”, which is twice as thick) and one troy ounce of pure silver.
The Czech Mint reworked all variants of the investment coins in 2020, but maintained the idea. Besides the Czech Lion in an non-traditionally realistic presentation, the reverse sides of the silver coins present two more symbols of Czech statehood - the St. Wenceslas crown, which rests on the head of a two-tailed beast, and an eagle on the shield that is a synthesis of St Wenceslas, Moravian and Silesian birds of prey. The medal maker Asamat Baltaev, DiS is the author of the relief. The obverse side bears the attributes of the island of Niue, which provides the Czech Mint with a foreign license to mint its own coins. The attributes 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.
