For the first time ever, the Czech Republic has issued Gold bullion investment coins


 Why  Bullion Czech Coins are good investment:


Coins with the mark "bullion coin" are made of precious metals (Gold, Silver, Platinum etc.) and serve primarily as an investment and a means of preserving value. 

Besides the medium to long-term potential of the evaluation, it also offers the unique advantages of industrial metal.

Czech Lions Gold Bullion Coins:

Gold coins are not just the privilege of numismatics, and they attract the interest of several more investors. 

In this issue 5 variants of the "Gold Lion" investment coins from the Czech Mint, are available to investors, which meet universally accepted standards worldwide, were dedicated to them. The smallest "Czech Lion" is available to investors with a weight of 1/25 Troy ounce.

The "Yellow Metal" diversifies the risk, and is an irreplaceable value-keeper offering investors an interesting appreciation.


Investing in commemorative coins is the ideal solution for those who want to put their funds into precious metals, and also want to own something that has its own collectible prize.

Increasingly, however, investors look for such investment coins especially because of their high liquidity and easy tradability.

The favourable price of gold coins (unlike commemorative coins) does not primarily capture collectible, artistic or historical value. Their "premium" - the difference between the price of precious metal on the exchange and the selling price of the coin - corresponds to this fact.

The Czech Mint has come up with a number of attractive options for investment in gold bullion coins which are the first of its kind embossed in the Czech Republic.

The low weight of gold investment coins allows an investor to easily regulate how much money you invest.


The "Czech Gold Lions" join the ranks of other Bullion coins:

The "Czech Lions" are among such  "investment coins" minted by the Czech Mint and  are the first coins of its kind embossed in the Czech Republic.

Introduced at the Investor Prague Show, the Czech Lion joins the ranks of the American Eagle, the Chinese Panda, the U.K.’s Britannia, the Australian Kangaroo, and several other government-guaranteed bullion programs.

The Czech Lion also joins a more exclusive club:

Well-designed, low-mintage bullion coins that, in their first (and in some cases, only) year of issue, which ultimately end up fetching a premium as collectibles.  As such these coins also can be categorised as “semi-numismatic bullion coins.”

The coins have been minted with the assistance of Niue Islands:

The Czech Republic wanted to issue a bullion coin with Queen Elizabeth II's effigy , with a few Czech motifs on the Obverse, to resemble the Sovereign Gold/Silver bullion coins for wider acceptability world-wide.

 Niue Islands (which has no coining mint) and which usually requisitions the help of various mints world-wide to mint its commemorative/circulating coins, has come to the aid of the Czech Mint and  for a first time helped create this coin for the Czech Republic, which has a mint (the Česká Mincovna) but so far did not have a bullion program.

The Czech Mint’s first bullion coin is the inaugural issue in the “Czech Nationhood” series

Why is the Czech Lion coin exceptional?

  • The Czech Lion bullion coin  meets the worldwide recognized "bullion coin" investment standards. 
  • The favorable price of this coin does not take into account collectible, artistic or historical value, which is likely to be far higher than its initial purchasing cost.
  • The price of this coin will depend primarily on the spot price of gold. 
  • The coin is easily tradable, among other things thanks to a buyback opportunity.
  • The easily recognizable motif of the coin has a strong connection with the Czech Republic.
           
                   The Reverse Design of the Gold Bullion coin 

The Reverse design of the Gold Bullion coin which comes in five variants ($5- encapsulated, $5 (numbered Blister Pack), $250 and $8,500). On the lower periphery is the name of the issuing country - "CESKA REPUBLIKA" (meaning "Czech Republic").



The motifs on the  Reverse  of this investment coin were inspired by the traditional symbols of the Czech Republic - the two-tailed lion, the St. Wenceslas crown and the flaming Saint Wenceslas Eagle - which contributes to the easy identification of the "Czech Lions" on the domestic and world markets.

                                   Czech Republic Coat of Arms The shield/emblems represent the three Czech lands of Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia.

The two-tailed Bohemian lion is depicted in a naturalistic style to the right of the field, reclining with its shoulders to the left and its tails to the right.

The double tails have multiple historical explanations, the essence of which is that they convey more than the usual amount of courage.

                  The Obverse Design of the Silver Bullion coin 

The Obverse of this coin carries Niue’s traditional Obversebut with a difference:

the Queen's effigy designed by Ian Rank-Broadley has been raised above center to make room for a linden branch across the lower portion of the coin,  along with the legends "NIUE ISLAND, ELIZABETH II, 2017 and 5 DOLLAR" (NZD) on the outer periphery.

The New Zealand Mint  has given a license to the Czech Mint to coin its own coins.

The Czech national tree, the linden, is heavily referenced in mythology and is especially long-lived, with some in the country being more than a thousand years old.

 The designer of this silver bullion coin is the late Jaroslav Bejvl Sr., a world-renowned designer of coins, medals, and crystal chandeliers. Bejvl passed away last year at the age of 75, after creating the design but before transferring it to a relief model. A young medalist named Asamat Baltaev stepped in to handle the final steps of the process.
