This beautiful 2020 1oz gold White Lion of Mortimer is the eighth of a series of ten from the "Queen's Beasts" range of Royal Mint coins.

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 White Lion of Mortimer is another beast inherited by the Queen from Edward IV of the House of York and it was a favoured symbol of King George VI - Queen Elizabeth II's father - prior to his coronation.

The Mortimer lion has no crown and has a blue tongue. This lion also sits, rather than rearing up, and holds a Yorkist shield bearing a ‘white rose en soleil’ (golden sun) on a half and half background.

The coin is 24-carat (or 999.9 purity) and contains one ounce of gold. Presented in an attractive black-lined oak gift box.

Just like other British currency, this coin will be also be exempt of any Capital Gains Tax.
