The Royal Mint is excited to introduce a new coin to The Queen’s Beasts Collection.

About The White Lion of Mortimer:
The White Lion of Mortimer is another beast inherited by the Queen from Edward IV of the House of York, as is the Black Bull. It was a 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 and holds a Yorkist shield bearing a ‘white rose en Soleil’ (golden sun) on a half and half background.
Features of the coin:
- The coin is finished in the Proof standard
- Each coin is struck from 1 kilo 99.9 % pure silver
- Low mintage: The maximum mintage would be 120 pieces for 1 kilo silver proof coin
- This interpretation of the White Lion of Mortimer is the 7th design in The Queen’s Beasts Collection
