The British Royal Mint just released the third coin in its Queen's Beast series of 2 oz silver coins. This "Dragon" is the third coin in the series of 10 planned - exclusively from one of the world’s oldest and most famous refineries.
At the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, ten heraldic beasts stood guard. The plaster models were created for the occasion, symbolising the various strands of royal ancestry brought together in a young woman about to be crowned queen.
These stunning coins ship individually or in mint tubes of 10. A full mint box contains 200 coins (400 ozs.). They are the first ever 2 ounce silver coin produced by the Royal Mint. The hefty coins are denominated as 5 British pounds - official legal tender in the United Kingdom.
The coin's obverse carries a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in high relief along with her name and the 5 pound denomination.
The reverse features a majestic dragon clutching England's official heraldic shield. The reverse also identifies the coin as "Red Dragon of Wales" along with displaying the coin’s weight, purity, metal content, and date.
The coin artist, Jody Clark, updated her Majesty’s portrait on the to reflect her age - something the Royal Mint had not done since 1998 when Sir Ian Rank-Broadley created the right-profile portrait still in use by some mints. Her Majesty's portrait has been updated 5 times since first appearing on British coinage in 1952.
The Royal Mint was founded in London during the 9th century.

Beautiful. My favorite in the set.

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,
