  • Description:

    The 2016 1 oz British Gold Queen's Beast Lion Coin marks the beginning of the highly acclaimed Queen's Beasts series by The Royal Mint. This series was inspired by the ten heraldic statues that stood guard at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, each representing a different historical lineage tied to Her Majesty. The Lion of England, being the first released in this series, sets a regal tone with its rich symbolism and artistic execution, appealing broadly to both investors and collectors of precious metal coins.

    Designed by the esteemed coin designer Jody Clark, the Lion of England coin features a majestic lion standing behind the shield of England, which bears the emblematic three lions that have been a symbol of the English monarchy since the 12th century. This portrayal is not only steeped in regal symbolism but also executed with meticulous detail, capturing the lion’s powerful and noble stance. On the obverse, the coin features the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, also designed by Jody Clark, representing her as both the head of state and a central figure in the heraldic themes that the series celebrates.

    This coin was struck in 999.9 fine gold, adhering to The Royal Mint's standard of high purity for bullion coins. The Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition of the coin signifies that while it has been handled, it has done so without any significant post-production impairments that would detract from its visual appeal or fine detail. This quality ensures that the coin retains a high level of detail, necessary for the appreciation of its intricate design and the lustre of its gold composition.

    The mintage of the 2016 1 oz British Gold Queen's Beast Lion Coin is not explicitly limited, which is typical for bullion coins intended primarily for the investment market. However, the demand driven by both collectors and investors often makes these coins scarce in the market over time, especially in pristine condition and as the series continues to grow in popularity and numismatic significance. This makes early editions like the 2016 Lion of England not only a valuable investment but also a prized collector’s item.

    Overall, the 2016 1 oz British Gold Queen's Beast Lion Coin embodies a perfect blend of numismatic craftsmanship and historical heritage. Its striking design, pure gold content, and Brilliant Uncirculated condition make it a standout piece. Whether for the serious investor seeking to diversify with gold assets, or the collector drawn to unique and meaningful themes, this coin offers enduring value and the promise of legacy within the evolving narrative of British royal symbolism.
