Unique in its history and significance, the White Lion of Mortimer strikes a markedly different pose than the Lion of England, which was the first release in the collection. The White Lion’s claws are retracted and it does not wear a crown. Over the centuries, some artists have chosen to portray the lion as submissive, but here designer Jody Clark has imbued the animal with dignity. It holds a shield bearing the 'white rose en soleil' – a combination of two symbols of particular importance to Edward IV, through whom Her Majesty The Queen traces her connection to this fascinating heraldic symbol.

The kilo coin is 100 millimetres in diameter, ensuring the best opportunity to take in the detail and artistry of Jody Clark's work, as well as the world-renowned precision and accuracy for which The Royal Mint is known. Only 13 of these coins are available, so it is an item worthy of treasuring and one that is sure to impress.
