2017 Great Britain 100 Pound 1-oz Gold Queen's Beasts The Lion Proof
This Gold Lion Roars as the First of the Queen's Beasts!
This spectacular 2017 One-Ounce Gold Queens Beast's Lion Proof is the premier offering in a 10-coin series from Britain's world renowned Royal Mint. This series celebrates the heraldic history of the British Monarchy, with each beast representing England, and its important families and clans over the last 1,000 years.
This first £100 (one hundred pound) legal-tender Lion is struck in 99.99% gold, some of the purest gold used to strike coins anywhere in the world. The dazzling frosted and mirrored surfaces of the coin display Jody Clark's bold design in superb detail. The Royal Lion raises its claw as it roars on the coin, protecting the shield holding Her Majesty's coat of arms with its other paw.
The Queen's Beasts are a series of mythical animals that were created as sculptures for the Queen's coronation in 1953. When the Queen became the longest reigning monarch in British history, this new series was brought to life in recognition of this monumental event.
Only 1,000 of these Gold Lions were minted -- an incredibly small number when you consider the Queen's popularity among collectors around the world. Your coin comes in an official Royal Mint presentation case and includes a certificate of authenticity as well as booklet telling the history of The Queen's Beasts.
Add this special Royal Mint Proof to your collection now before they're gone for good!
