The Dragon 2oz Fine Silver Bullion Coin | The Royal Mint

The Queen's Beasts 2017 - The Dragon Two Ounce Fine Silver Bullion Coin

  • A new, exclusive bullion range from The Royal Mint with original reverse designs
  • Struck in two ounces of 999.9 fine silver
  • Minted to bullion standard
  • The third in a series of ten designs that will celebrate each of The Queen’s Beasts
  • Both obverse and reverse by British Coin Designer Jody Clark, creator of the latest definitive portrait of The Queen on UK coinage

The latest addition to our Queen’s Beasts bullion range takes its inspiration from hundreds of years of royal heraldry. 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 latest definitive coinage portrait of The Queen to appear on United Kingdom coins. His bold interpretation of the Lion of England was the first to be released, followed by the Griffin, associated with Edward III. The Welsh dragon was used in the Royal Arms in the sixteenth century and represents sovereignty and power.

The Red Dragon of Cadwallader is the emblem of Wales and is the third in a series of ten designs that will celebrate each of The Queen’s Beasts.
