Buy a 2016 Queen's Beasts Lion Of England Two Ounce Silver Bullion Coin

In 2016, an exciting new coin series was unveiled by The Royal Mint: The Queen's Beasts. The first release is the Lion of England, with this edition being the two ounce bullion version. The Lion of England is one of the prominent symbols in Britain today, taking its place on the official Royal Coat of Arms. This fearsome beast has featured in the English royal arms since mediaeval times, symbolising courage and nobility. Jody Clark took inspiration for his reverse design from the Lion of England statue at Westminster Abbey, and he majestically recreates it on the reverse of this coin. The crowned 'King of the Beasts' is seen holding the shield of the Royal Arms with his left claw and roaring. This striking design also complements Clark's engraving of the obverse, which shows the fifth UK coinage portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II and is one of the first coins to feature this particular motif of Her Majesty. These investment pieces have a face value of £5 / Five Pounds and feature the textured background that distinguishes bullion Queen's Beasts pieces from their proof counterparts. You'll receive your pre-owned Lion of England coin loose: there may be some slight blemishes present on the surface which is nothing abnormal for uncirculated bullion coins. The precious metal value will not be affected. Specifications are a weight of 28.28 grams and a diameter of 38.61 millimetres.

These uncirculated Queen's Beasts bullion coins may show some very minor marks owing to mass production methods. This is perfectly normal and will not affect the bullion value of your coins. Images provided of this product are stock photos and the coins you receive will be from the same issue, having the exact same specifications. Some modern UK coins naturally develop toning or milk spots over time and these features may be present on the coin you receive. We cannot exchange coins displaying toning or milkspots.
