Seems to reference this: https://www.acsearch.info/search.html?id=719899

Looks like there's a stamp below the lion indicating yours is a modern repro.

Modern replica of a Prague groschen of the type issued under Wenceslaus II of Bohemia (Czech Republic), circa 1300-1500 a.d.

The originals managed to circulate for over two centuries because compared to many other competing small silver groschen/groszy/etc. they maintained a very high silver content, .933 (compare to sterling at .925!)

The obverse legends read: DEI GRATIA REX BOEMIE on the outer circle, and WENCEZLAVS SECVNDVS on the inner; taken together, they mean Wenceslaus II, King of Bohemia by the Grace of God.

The reverse legend reads: GROSSI PRAGENSES (Groschen of Prague.)

This replica has the date 1994 below the lion on the reverse.

Well worth having in a collection, even if a replica.
There is obviously no attempt at fakery here,
OK, so long as no one attempts to sell it as original and genuine.

They are an important part of the history of European silver trade coinage and high quality replicas look just fine in collections of such coinage along with guldiners, luigini, kronenthaler, MTT's, etc. I agree with sel that this is a good quality replica and not a cheap tourist fake or attempt at deception.
