The Royal Mint is excited to add the latest bullion Silver Ten Ounce coin to The Queen's Beasts collection. Inspired by ancient symbols of power and identity, the range brings to life the ten imposing statues that lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen.

Following the success of previous coins emblazoned with The Red Dragon of Wales, this silver ten ounce edition features the same original design by acclaimed coin designer Jody Clark.

The Celtic dragon represents sovereignty and power. The Welsh dragon was used in the Royal Arms in the sixteenth century and the Red Dragon of Cadwallader is the emblem of Wales. This will be the third in a series of ten designs that will celebrate each of The Queen's Beasts.
