When Her Majesty The Queen was crowned on 2 June 1953, ten statues were created to form a guard of honour at the entrance to Westminster Abbey. The Queen’s Beasts Coin Collection breathes new life into these mighty creatures that represent the British monarchy.
The Lion of England is the first release of The Queen’s Beast Series. Designer, Jody Clark has taken centuries of tradition and combined it with contemporary design to create a series of dynamic reverse designs. The Lion is a traditional symbol of courage and strength, an intimidating but graceful figure that regularly appears in emblems and coin designs. The ‘King of the Beasts’ resonates with each of the United Kingdom’s home nations, making it a fitting choice for The Queen’s Beasts. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of beloved British Monarch, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
