The Czech Lion coins, now in their 6th year of issue, have been designed and manufactured by the Czech Mint. This mint was formed when Czechoslovakia dissolved into two independent states in 1993. Since then, The Czech Mint has become an internationally renowned producer of a variety of coins, medals, and sets. The Czech Lion series is one of their most popular collections thanks to low mintages and fresh designs with new year of release.
