Historical Significance

The Queen's Beast series is inspired by the ten heraldic statues that graced the entrance to Westminster Abbey during Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953.

Each beast represents a part of the royal ancestry, bringing to life the centuries-old traditions and lineage.

The Lion of England stands out prominently as a symbol of courage, strength, and dignity, echoing the attributes associated with England’s medieval warrior rulers, notably Richard the Lionheart.

Design and Artistry

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Lion of England coin showcases the formidable lion standing bold and proud, a classic representation of England's heraldic culture.

The obverse of the coin features the iconic effigy of Queen Elizabeth II (1926 - 2022), designed by Jody Clark, marking it as a sovereign coin backed by the British government. The words include “100 POUNDS,” “ELIZABETH II,” and “D. G. REG F. D.”

The Latin-to-English translation of D. G. Reg F. D. is ‘D G REG’ “Dei Gratia Regina” and ‘F D’ “Fidei defensor” meaning, “Elizabeth II, by the grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith.”

The reverse side of the coin, also designed by Jody Clark whose initials can be found below the shield, displays the majestic Lion of England wearing a royal crown, symbolizing the nation's heritage and royal lineage. He roars behind the family crest shield. The words on this side of the coin include “LION OF ENGLAND,” “1 OZ FINE GOLD,” “999.9,” and the year “2016.”
