The lion has long been seen as the national symbol of the Czech Republic. There are various narratives and myths surrounding this and historians cannot quite pinpoint the exact origin of the lion’s significance in the Czech Republic. However, it is known that the lion appeared in 1203 on the equestrian seal of Vladislaus Henry, and later was established as a national symbol by Ottokar II of Bohemia.
Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse of 2022 1/2 oz Niue Czech Lion Coins. Shown facing the right side, the Queen here wears the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara in a portrait designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. Her Majesty is surrounded by the outline of a shield that contains the coin’s hallmarks. The rest of the design consists of a heraldic eagle common to the Czech Republic.
A lion is featured on the reverse field of 2022 Gold Niue Czech Lion Coins. While previous years have depicted the lion in a more traditional heraldic style, this 2022 portrait is much more realistic in its design. The lion is shown facing directly towards us with a wise, knowing expression on its face. Atop its head is the Crown of Saint Wenceslas. Around the edges are linden leaves from the Czech Republic’s national tree. Inscriptions include Ceska Republika, 1/2 oz Au 999.9.
