The first coin in our Queen’s Beasts bullion range is The Lion of England, taking its inspiration from hundreds of years of royal heraldry. The Queen’s Beasts bullion coins not only provide a new option for those looking to invest, but the range also includes a two-ounce silver coin – the first time an official two-ounce United Kingdom bullion coin has been struck.
The background for this range comes from the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, where ten heraldic beasts stood guard, The Queen’s Beasts, sculpted by James Woodford RA for the coronation ceremony.
The coins each depict one of The Queen’s Beasts, reimagined by Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark. Jody also created the definitive coinage portrait of The Queen to appear on United Kingdom coins. His bold interpretation of The Lion of England is the first coin in the series, followed by The Griffin and The Red Dragon of Wales.
