Blending animalistic attributes with fantastical characteristics, The Queen’s Beasts have been synonymous with Her Majesty The Queen since her coronation almost 70 years ago. One of these heraldic creatures is the legendary White Lion of Mortimer.
Steeped in history, the lion descends to The Queen through her Yorkist heritage, dating back to Edward IV and beyond. The coin design depicts this impressive beast equipped with a shield that bears the House of Mortimer’s badge, prominently featuring the historic ‘rose-en-soleil’.
Now in its fifth year, The Queen’s Beasts Collection is proud to welcome this historic creature to the series. The rich heritage of this regal feline has been beautifully captured by acclaimed Royal Mint coin designer Jody Clark.
The heraldic features of the lion are backed by a secure chainmail background texture, providing a fitting backdrop for this impressive beast. The White Lion of Mortimer bullion coin is now available as a ten-ounce silver and a one-ounce platinum edition.
- Minted in 999.9 fine silver 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
