The 2016 1/4 oz Gold Lion is part of the exciting Queen's Beast series from the Royal Mint. The series began with the Lion of England in 2016 and continues with the Griffin of Edward III in 2017. 1/4 oz gold coins of this calibre are ideal for both collectors and investors and the magnificent 2016 Gold Lion is available right now at coininvest.com
The Queen's Beast series of bullion coins depict the ten fantastic beasts of the British monarchy and the Royal Mint took its inspiration from the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. These striking coins were designed by artist Jody Clark and the crowned Lion of England is the first in the series.
The Lion of England has been one of the Royal heraldic beasts since the accession of James I and IV in 1603. For the 2016 1/4 oz Gold Lion, Jody Clark has chosen to show the lion bearing a shield showing the Arms of the United Kingdom -the three lions of England, the lion rampant of Scotland and the Harp of Ireland - as used since 1837 during the reign of Queen Victoria. The coin's obverse features the definitive 'fifth portrait' of Queen Elizabeth II, also by Jody Clark.
