2016 2 oz Silver Coin Queen's Beasts Lion of England Bullion - Secondary Market

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. The Lion of England is usually depicted wearing a crown, which it does on this coin. 

The shield is quartered and displays the lion itself in the first and last quarter. The Scottish lion appears on the second quarter, with the harp or Ireland in the third. 

This coin is struck in 999.9 silver fineness.
