The Czech Mint is a relatively young national mint, having been established in 1993 after the Czech and Slovak Federative Republic split into two independent states. The mint was created under the authority of the Czech National Bank and produces a wide range of coins, medals, and commemorative sets. The Czech Mint also collaborates closely with the Jablonec School of Applied Arts, which teaches the art of coin making. Many of its employees are graduates of the school.
The obverse of 2022 2 oz Silver Czech Lion Coins features the popular effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait was designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley and depicts the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. Surrounding the portrait is a shield with inscriptions around it of the country, year, and denomination. A heraldic eagle combining parts of the St. Wenceslas, Moravian, and Silesian designs occupy the background.
On the reverse side of 2022 Silver Niue Czech Lion Coins is a regal lion. This stunning design shows the lion in vivid detail as a contrast to previous releases of this coin. The lion wears the Crown of Saint Wenceslas, which historically was used for the coronation of Bohemian kings. Linden branch leaves are shown along the edge in recognition of the Czech Republic’s national tree. Inscriptions read Ceska Republika, 2 oz Au .999.
