Blending animalistic attributes with fantastical characteristics, The Queen’s Beasts have been synonymous with Her Majesty The Queen since her coronation almost 70 years ago. One of these heraldic creatures is the legendary White Lion of Mortimer.
Steeped in history, the lion descends to The Queen through her Yorkist heritage, dating back to Edward IV and beyond. The coin design depicts this impressive beast equipped with a shield that bears the House of Mortimer’s badge, prominently featuring the historic ‘rose-en-soleil’.
Now in its fifth year, The Queen’s Beasts Collection is proud to welcome this historic creature to the series. The rich heritage of this regal feline has been beautifully captured by acclaimed Royal Mint coin designer Jody Clark.
The heraldic features of the lion are backed by a secure chainmail background texture, providing a fitting backdrop for this impressive beast.
Each coin comes individually encapsulated.
