The White Lion of Mortimer descends to Her Majesty The Queen through her Yorkist heritage. First used by Roger Mortimer, Earl of March, a founder Knight of the Order of the Garter, it passed to the House of York and was notably used by Edward IV.

With a regal history dating back to the 1300s, the White Lion of Mortimer has been synonymous with Queen Elizabeth II since her coronation in 1953. Now in its fifth year, The Queen’s Beasts Collection proudly features the impressive feline in its rightful position as part of this series of stunning heraldic designs.

The 2021 design features the majestic lion armed with a shield that bears the Mortimer badge, distinguishable by the ‘rose-en-soleil’ in the centre. The stunning features of the lion are backed by a secure chainmail background texture, providing a fitting backdrop for this impressive beast.

Blending the regal heritage of the monarchy with the impressive stature of the beast, the White Lion of Mortimer has been magnificently captured by Royal mint designer Jody Clark. This bullion coin is an attractive addition to The Queen’s Beasts Collection, and is now also available as a ten-ounce silver coin.

Key features:

  • Minted in 999.5 fine platinum to The Royal Mint’s bullion standard
  • Both the coin’s obverse and reverse have been created by iconic coin designer Jody Clark
  • Struck by The Royal Mint, the home of every official United Kingdom coin struck during Her Majesty’s reign
  • Exempt from UK Capital Gains Tax for UK residents
