Lion of England

The lion has appeared as a heraldic symbol since the twelth century when Henry I presented a shield with golden lions to one of his courtiers. Epitomising bravery, strength and valour, the lion has continued to appear on royal coats of arms and heraldic shields.

This is the first coin in the Royal Mint's Queen's Beast series of 10 bullion coins which are based on ten statues that were created by sculptor, James Woodford RA for the Queen's coronation in 1953. Each statue features heraldic details that are part of Elizabeth II's ancestry.

The 1oz gold coins have a face value of £100.


The obverse of the Queen's Beasts lion bears the Jody Clark fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. 


The reverse design displays a lion holding shield of Royal Arms. The legend reads:


This was designed by The Royal Mint engraver, Jody Clark.
