The Royal Mint Queen's Beast series of coins continues to grow with the addition of the One Ounce Platinum Lion of England to the range. Not only is the Queen's Beasts the first ever series of Platinum coins issued by the Royal Mint, the Lion being the first in this series, is also the first ever UK Platinum bullion coin.
The Queen's Beasts are ten statues which stood guard for the Queen's Coronation, sculpted by James Woodford RA in 1953. The Queen's Beasts are still standing, but are currently housed at the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec, Canada. Stone replicas of the statues can be found at Kew gardens.
The Lion of England is One Ounce of fine Platinum and presented in an attractive oak gift box.
A note to collectors: If you intend to collect this series of coins, they do sell out quite quickly and once gone, they will not be available in the future.
