Royal Mint Product Description:

When Her Majesty The Queen was crowned in 1953, a striking line-up of statues acted as a reminder of the centuries of tradition that went before her. The Queen's Beasts were carved for her coronation more than 60 years ago and now these creatures have been brought to life once again, for a new collection that will celebrate each of these symbolic guardians in turn.

Both the coin's obverse and reverse were created by Royal Mint coin designer Jody Clark. His interpretation pays tribute to the statuesque form of the coronation sculptures but brings a dynamic feel to the lion with its fierce 'rampant' stance. This coin is an example of The Royal Mint's craftsmanship, with every detail of the design captured by our Proof finish on this, the smallest coin in the range. This edition is struck in a quarter-ounce of 999.9 fine gold and comes with a booklet produced in association with Clive Cheesman, Richmond Herald at the College of Arms.
