For hundreds of years the lion has been an important symbol in the Czech Republic. On the Czech coat of arms, you will find a unique double-tailed lion wearing a crown. There are many accounts as to the origin of this double-tailed lion, and historians are not quite sure which is accurate. One popular myth is the story of Prince Bruncvík, who rescued a lion from a nine-headed beast. During the process, the prince accidentally sliced the lion’s tail in two. Bruncvik then prayed to the gods, who healed the lion’s tail while also keeping it split in two pieces. The lion and the prince, each the other’s companion and friend, journeyed home together.
On the obverse of the 2022 1/4 oz Niue Lion Gold Coin is a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This popular effigy was created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 and represents the 4th generation portrait of Her Majesty used for coinage. Surrounding this design is a shield, with a heraldic eagle occupying the remainder of the obverse face. The country of origin, denomination, and year are inscribed around the shield.
The reverse face of 2022 Niue Czech Lion Gold Coins depicts a lion wearing the Crown of Saint Wenceslas. Compared to previous entries in the series, this lion appears very life-like, designed in close-up and looking straight at us. Leaves of a linden branch belonging to the national tree of the Czech Republic are shown across the rim, along with the words Ceska Republika. The coin’s weight and purity are also featured
