Queen Elizabeth II’s 1953 coronation, ten statues called The Queen’s Beasts stood guard at the entrance to Westminster Abbey. Each creature represented a strand of the young woman’s ancient royal heritage that passed to her on that historic day. In 2016, the Royal Mint reincarnated the ten royal guardians who stood guard that day in a beautiful new coin series called The Queen’s Beasts. Each new release explores one of these ten fantastical protectors and the centuries-old story they have to tell.

The 8th release in the Queen’s Beasts 10-coin series commemorates the White Lion of Mortimer. The White Lion was passed to Queen Elizabeth through Edward IV. Unlike the Lion of England, the While Lion of Mortimer is often depicted uncrowned. Each coin is intricately struck in 1 oz fine gold and bears a face value of 100 pounds backed by the British government. Add this stunning 8th coin in the Queen’s Beast series to your order today!

The Queen's Beasts Collection bears ancient symbols of ancestry, power and heraldry in a series of prestigious coins. Royal Mint Designer Jody Clark portrayed ten animals guarding Her Majesty the Queen's coronation in 1953; each represents a line of origin drawn up by a young woman who was to be crowned before men.

The coin depicting the White Horse from Hanover is the last edition of the collection - a symbol that reached Her Majesty through her Hanoverian ancestors. In 1714, George Ludwig, ruler of the German Duchy of Hanover, ascended the throne of Great Britain, as George I brought Heraldry to the region using a white horse on a red background. The shield holding a white horse depicts three English lions, a lion from Scotland, a fleur-de-lis from France, an Irish harp and Hanoverian weapons. The white horse from Hanover is shown on the right and hides it differently from the mythical relative of this unicorn. With a secure chain mail background, the realism of the White Horse of Hanover is reflected in its integrity.

This gold coin from The Queen's Beasts Collection is also available as a quarter-gold and silver two-month edition.
