Historical Significance

When Queen Elizabeth II was crowned, ten statues of heraldic beasts stood guard, symbolizing the royal ancestry that culminated in her coronation. The Red Dragon of Wales is one of these symbols, representing the power and authority of Welsh kings since the 5th century. The dragon also appears on the Welsh national flag, reinforcing its deep-rooted significance in British history.

Known in Welsh as "Y Ddraig Goch," it has been associated with Welsh identity for centuries. Historically linked to the power of Welsh kings and celebrated in Arthurian legend as a symbol of native Britons' triumph, the Red Dragon represents courage, strength, and resilience.

Today, it remains a prominent national emblem, symbolizing the enduring spirit and cultural significance of Wales, and its depiction on coins continues to connect modern collectors with this rich historical legacy.

Design and Craftsmanship

The British Royal Mint has captured the majesty and power of the Red Dragon of Wales in this limited-issue coin. On the reverse, the dragon is depicted holding the heraldic shield of England with its claws, a striking image that emphasizes its strength and regality. The obverse features a high-relief portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Jody Clark, along with her name and the 5-pound denomination.

  • Obverse Design: Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark

    Another Beauty of A Beast
    The Red Dragon of Wales is a fine addition to the line of the Queen's Beast Coins series. Thick hefty feel to a coin that is certainly "Real Money". For the folks who like to look at their silver carefully, notice the beauty of The Queens Crown on these Beast coins. Thanks for another well packed order, and great delivery time, Look forward to my next order,
