The Lion of England 1oz Gold Proof coin was the first proof issue of The Queen's Beasts series created by The Royal Mint. The collection was designed by Jody Clark, and features the 5th Portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II, on the coin's obverse with a classic heraldic image on the reverse. The series was released in 2017, commemorating the year Her Majesty became the longest reigning monarch in history. In this edition of the series, the coin captures a depiction of the lion in its 'rampant' pose. The lion signals majesty, strength, and military might, and is one of the most recognisable images in royal emblems. These symbols of heraldry, myth and ancient legend date back over 1,000 years to King Edward III's reign, and now immortalised in coinage, the Beasts are a highly collectible tribute to Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II. Now, numismatists can secure this token of royal heritage to treasure for eternity. Adding to that collectibility, this coin has the designation of being one of the first 250 struck and has received a perfect PF70 grade from world renowned grading company, NGC.
