The Royal Mint was founded over 1,000 years ago, being one of the most prestigious international mints. Last year, the mint introduced its beautiful Queen’s Beasts series, simultaneously releasing its first 2 oz. and .9999 fine silver coin - the Queen’s Beast Lion. The series celebrates centuries of royalty and heraldic history by depicting new designs of the ten British heraldic beasts that stood guard at Her Majesty’s coronation in 1953: the Lion of England, the Griffin of Edward III, the Red Dragon of Wales, the Falcon of the Plantagenets, the Black Bull of Clarence, the Yale of Beaufort, the White Lion Mortimer, the Unicorn of Scotland, and the White Horse of Hanover.
The Queen’s Beast Red Dragon is the third coin issued in the series, the second being Queen’s Beast Griffin. The red dragon has been represented on a badge used by Owen Tudor and was later taken by his grandson, Henry VII. The beast gained popularity due to its association as a battle standard of King Arthur, as well as other ancient Celtic leaders. The Celtic dragon represents power and sovereignty. During Tudor’s reigns, the red dragon was depicted on the coat of arms of the English Crown.
Today, the Red Dragon of Cadwallader is the emblem on the Wales national flag. The coin showcases the mighty red dragon holding in its claws a shield bearing a lion in each quarter. The coin’s exceptional design and high purity make it an excellent addition to any portfolio and a wonderful gift.
