At the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, 10 heraldic beasts stood guard. The original Queen’s Beasts, sculpted by James Woodford RA for the coronation ceremony held in Westminster Abbey in 1953, each stand six feet tall. The heraldic creatures symbolized the various strands of royal ancestry brought together in a young woman about to be crowned queen. Each proud beast, used as a heraldic badge by generations that went before her, was inspired by the King’s Beasts of Henry VIII that still line the bridge over the moat at his Hampton Court Palace.

Today, The Queen’s Beasts can be found at the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec, while Portland stone replicas, also carved by James Woodford, watch over Kew Gardens in the United Kingdom. These mythical, ancient creatures such as the lion, griffin, falcon, bull, yale, greyhound, dragon, unicorn and horse have gone on to inspire the highly praised new talent, Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark.

The White Lion of Mortimer descended to the Queen through Edward IV. The shield shows a white rose encircled by a sun, known as "white rose en soleil". Both of these appear on the Great Seal of Edward IV and Richard III, and were used by George VI while Duke of York. The while lion is uncrowned, unlike the Lion of England.

This series looks great in Silver and Platinum

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I was collecting this series in Silver but sometimes its easier to find it in platinum. This is a beautiful Lion and shield crest. I love the artwork and this is an attractive coin to add to your collection. The Lion shines in platinum beautifully. I appreciate the skill of the artist who made all of these coins and I am happy I was able to get this.
