First Ever Czech Lion Bullion Coins from the Czech Mint
APMEX, Inc., a leading online Precious Metals retailer based in Oklahoma City, is pleased to announce the newest releases from the Czech Mint celebrating timeless icons of the central European country.
In 2017, the Czech Mint introduced their first-ever bullion coin, showcasing the famous Czech lion bullion coins, emblematic of the Czech Republic coat of arms. Additionally, each coin features a branch of a linden tree, considered sacred in Slavic mythology.
Following up on the vast success of the initial Czech Lion release, the mint is bringing back this beloved design on Silver coins from 1 oz to 1 kilo and Gold coins from 1/25 oz up to 1 kilo. The 1 oz Silver Czech Lion, in addition to having a limited mintage of just 20,000 coins, is also a U.S. APMEXclusive®.
These 2018 Gold and Silver Czech Lion coins bear the same design as the previous year, featuring the two-tailed Czech lion. The lion is shown guarding the Crown of Saint Wenceslas and the shield bearing the national patron’s emblem – the burning eagle. The obverse depicts the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, as well as year and denomination.
These second release coins are an ideal way to add to, or even begin, a beautiful Czech Lion collection. Shop the full range of Gold and Silver options now available at APMEX.
