At the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, ten heraldic beasts stood guard. The plaster models were created for the occasion, symbolising the various strands of royal ancestry brought together in a young woman about to be crowned queen.
Taking inspiration from the original statues, the Royal Mint has created the sense of strength and courage the beasts were intended to convey starting with a fierce lion; the first in a series of ten designs that will in turn celebrate each of The Queen's Beasts. A VERY COLLECTABLE COIN AT BULLION PRICES.
