The 2017 Queen's Beasts Red Dragon 2oz silver coin is the third in the series.
This coin fits a high relief capsule.
The 2017 Red Dragon is the third coin in the Queen's Beast series. The Red Dragon symbolises the Queen's Welsh heritage which can be traced back Owen Tudor, father of Henry VII. Wales is the only country in the world to use the dragon on its national flag. Throughout history, the dragon has been symbolic of the devil, however, the Welsh see this mythical beast as a symbol of strength, victory, wealth and power.
Designed by Jody Clark, the Queen's Beast coin series are based on the ten statues that were commissioned to guard the entrance of Westminster Abbey when Elizabeth II was coronated in 1953. These uncirculated bullion coins are sought after by coin collectors and silver investors.
Both the obverse and the reverse of the coin was designed by Jody Clark. The obverse is the fifth coinage portrait of Elizabeth II. The coin bears the inscription:
ELIZABETH II·D·G·REG·F·D·5 POUNDS·
The reverse bears an engraving of the Red Dragon of Cadwaladr. The dragon is shown with its wings extended and holding the heraldic shield of the arms of Llewelyn ap Griffith, the last sovereign prince of Wales before the country was defeated by Edward I. The inscription reads:
RED DRAGON OF WALES 2oz·FINE SILVER·999.9·2017
