The beasts of heraldry are ancient symbols of power and lineage, passed down through generations and centuries. Fascinating stories can be found behind the pageantry, not least in The Queen’s Beasts. Ten creatures stood guard at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen at Westminster Abbey in 1953. Hundreds of years of British history were represented by the mythical beasts – the griffin, falcon, bull, yale, greyhound, dragon, unicorn, horse and two lions – all carved in her honor.
This majestic coin is a must-have for any collection! Add this 2017 Great Britain Proof 5 oz Silver Queen's Beasts Lion to your cart today!
Jody has given The Queen’s Beasts Collection a fierce and fantastical start with the lion of England, inspired by both heraldry and the true nature of the beast in the wild.

Recently bought 5oz Lion of England. When I inspected the coin I found a gouge slightly smaller than a pin head between the I and O in lion. How did this pass quality control for a proof coin for this price? If the proof coin was flawed or damaged in any way it should have been send back to the mint, not sold.
