At Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, ten statues called The Queen’s Beasts stood guard at the entrance to Westminster Abbey. Each creature represented a strand of the young woman’s royal heritage that passed to her on that historic day. In 2016, the Royal Mint reincarnated the ten royal guardians who stood guard that day in a beautiful new coin series called The Queen’s Beasts. Each new release explores one of these ten fantastical protectors and the centuries-old story they have to tell.
The first release in the Queen’s Beasts 10-coin series commemorates the iconic Lion of England. The Lion has been a central figure in the Royal Arms since the accession of James I in 1603, representing courage, strength, and dignity in Queen Elizabeth’s royal heritage. Each coin is intricately struck in 1/4 oz fine gold and bears a face value of 25 pounds backed by the British government. Add this stunning debut coin in the Queen’s Beast series to your order today!
