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 coins have been minted with the assistance of Niue Islands:

- The easily recognizable motif of the coin has a strong connection with the Czech Republic.
