  • Description:

    The 2020 Queen's Beasts 1 oz British Gold White Lion coin represents a majestic continuation of The Royal Mint's Queen’s Beasts series, which commemorates the ten heraldic statues presented at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Each statue symbolizes her ancestral ties and the rich tapestry of monarchy that has shaped Britain. The White Lion of Mortimer, distinct from the Lion of England, heralds from Edward IV and passed through the Plantagenets to the Queen.

    This coin features the heraldic White Lion in a bold stance, with a detailed design by Jody Clark. The lion is depicted standing behind a shield that bears the sunburst badge of Edward IV, symbolizing the dawn of a new era brought about by his reign. The intricacies of the lion’s mane and its muscular build are captured with exquisite artistry, showcasing the Mint's commitment to craftsmanship. The obverse of the coin presents a dignified portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, also designed by Clark, emphasizing the continuity of her lineage and the relevance of the historical symbol today.

    Struck from one troy ounce of 999.9 fine gold, the 2020 White Lion coin is issued in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. This level of quality ensures that each coin maintains a pristine finish, free from the usual marks of handling and circulation. This condition is crucial for collectors who value the integrity and luster of the coin as issued by the Mint, preserving its details and finish for future generations.

    The mintage of the 2020 Queen’s Beasts White Lion of Mortimer gold coin is not usually disclosed immediately, adding an element of exclusivity and potential for appreciation in value. Its status as a collector’s item is bolstered by its limited availability and its position within the broader Queen’s Beasts series, which has been widely acclaimed for its artistic merit and historical significance.

    Overall, the 2020 Queen’s Beasts 1 oz British Gold White Lion coin is a formidable piece of numismatic art that offers collectors and investors alike a touch of regal prestige and historical depth. It not only serves as a financial investment but also as a collectible that carries the weight of centuries of British heraldry, immortalized in gold and representing the enduring legacy of the monarchy. Owning this coin is akin to holding a piece of British royal history, crafted to the highest standards of the venerable Royal Mint.
