The Queen’s Beasts Series from The Royal Mint has grown in popularity ever since the first release of the Gold and Silver Lion in 2016. These inaugural 2 oz Silver, 1 oz Gold and 1/4 oz Gold coins were so popular The Royal Mint added 1 oz Platinum and 10 oz Silver versions of each design as well.
Heralded as the protectors of the royal crown, each of the 10 beasts is significant in English history. Depicted on this latest release is the Red Dragon of Wales. During the reigns of the Tudor monarchs, the coat of arms displayed a Welsh Dragon as one of the two supporters of the Royal Arms of England, with the other being the traditional Lion of England. To this day, the Red Dragon of Wales is used in many institutions, including the Welsh government, the Football Association of Wales and the London Welsh Rugby Football Club.
The Royal Mint also recently announced the fifth design in the series – The Black Bull of Clarence. Similar to each release in the series, these new issues were designed by the renowned Jody Clark. As The Royal Mint’s engraver, Clark was also commissioned for the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, currently featured on British coins. You can also see his work on many commemorative pieces, along with the 2014 Britannia coin.
