Money Metals Exchange proudly offers the White Lion of Mortimer - the 8th release in the Queen's Beast series of coins from the Royal Mint. London's Royal Mint just released this stunning silver bullion coin and the mintage will be very small. Grab yours today. When the next coin in the series is issued, production of the White Lion will end and the design will be retired.
The series commemorates the ten imposing statues that lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. The statues were of the heraldic beasts - ancient symbols of power representing noble families and houses in the Queen's line of ancestors.
The White Lion of Mortimer links Queen Elizabeth to King Edward IV. The coin's reverse shows the Lion clutching a shield emblazoned with a white rose encircled by a golden sun - the ‘white rose en soleil’. The same symbols appear on Great Seals of Edward IV and Richard III, as well as George VI.
The White Lion should not be confused with the first coin in the series - which depicts the Lion of England. The heraldic shield with the simple rose and sunburst design is quite different from the one portrayed with the Lion of England, which is divided in four quadrants with four separate symbols. The White Lion is also uncrowned, while the Lion of England wears the royal crown.
The coin's obverse carries the iconic portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The weight and purity of this sovereign coin is guaranteed by the British government.
This bullion coin is currently offered in a two-ounce silver edition.
These silver coins for sale area whopping 10 times the size of other popular bullion coins for sale, such as the silver American Eagle bullion coin or Canadian Silver Maple. If that isn't enough to make them stand out, the beautiful image of the Lion clutching the shield of Beaufort on the coin's reverse certainly will. Each is minted with .9999 pure silver, and denominated with £10 (British pounds). The coins ship from the mint in boxes of 15 coins -- though investors may buy in any quantity, with no minimum purchase.
Britain's Royal Mint has been minting the coins of the realm for more than a thousand years. Sir Isaac Newton served as Warden of the Mint in 1696. Among other duties, he was responsible for investigating counterfeit coins. After 3 years in that role, he was appointed Master of the Mint, a title he retained until his death in 1727.

Beautiful coin with lots of fine detail. Glossy too. I like to use coffee cans for my silver, and this coin, in its included holder, is an exact fit for a standard sized steel coffee can. Gotta love that.
