Why is the Czech Lion coin exceptional?

The coin is easily tradable, among other things thanks to a buyback opportunity
The coin weight corresponds to ten (10) troy ounce
The easily recognizable motif of the coin has a strong connection with the Czech Republic
Coin double-tailed story
It is not easy to be sure for lack of historical sources. Vladislav II. got a first sign with a lion from Friedrich Barbarossa in 1158 together with title "king" as a reminder that Czech warriors fought for Friedrich "as lions". But this lion had just one tail. Where we got the double-tailed lion? Maybe this comes from Premysl Otakar II. He was using a double-tailed lion sign to hint that he is "a second or younger king" of Bohemia (1247). When he was crowned as the king, he kept the double-tailed lion as the Czech coat. And so it remains until today...
Obverse: A profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, issuing country, year of issue, the face value and the decorative Czech linden branch.
Reverse: Features an image of a two-tailed Czech Lion, which is in the Coat of Arms for the Czech Republic. The heraldic beast guards the elaborate Crown of Saint Wenceslas and the shield bearing the national patron's emblem, the burning eagle.
