Queen's Beasts New Series

The inspiration behind this bullion coin series is the Queen's Beasts. These heraldic beasts stood guard at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning monarch in British history.

Each of the coins in the series will depict a different beast; the white lion of Hanover, white greyhound of Richmond, falcon of the Plantagenets, red dragon of Cadwalader, lion of England, white lion of Mortimer, black bull of Clarence, griffin of Edward II, beaufort of Yale and the unicorn of Scotland.


All the coins in the series will be designed by the Royal Mint designer, Jody Clark.

The reverse of this coin shows the lion of England.

The obverse of the coin shows the fifth coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, also by Jody Clark.
