Product Details

Queen's Beasts Lion1 oz The Queen's Beasts - The English Lion

A total of ten heraldic

creatures are described as the Queen’s Beasts symbolising the history of Queen

Elizabeth II. Originally, the name referred to ten stucco statues with a height

of approximately 1.80 m which were created in front of Westminster Abbey on the

occasion of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation. Until today, the ten creatures

have adorned pieces of crockery, cutlery, candle holders and postage stamps

issued by Royal Mail.

With the English Lion only

the first creature adorns its own coin. The lion is a wide-spread heraldic

symbol, and in the case of England it probably goes back to William the

Conqueror who had a red crest with two golden lions. Since the reign of Richard

the Lionheart the two lions became three lions, and as such they form part of

the English crest.

Apart from the English

Lion, the Griffin of

Edward III, the Hawk of the House of Plantagenet, the Black Bull of the Duke of Clarence, the Yale of the House of Beaufort, the White Lion of the

Mortimer family, the White Greyhound of Richmond,

the Red Dragon of Wales, the Scottish Unicorn and the White Horse of the House of Hannover make up the Queen's Beasts.

The English Lion will be

the start of the series. As soon as the next coin of the series comes out, we

will happily make it available to you.
