Why by this £100 Great Britain 2020 1 oz Gold Queen's Beasts - White Lion of Mortimer?
The British Royal Mint continues its extremely popular Queen's Beasts Series, which when complete will feature ten coins. Each release in the series features one of the creatures that was present in stone at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Thanks to its stunning and diverse designs and the fact that a varied series will be completed over just a few years, this series has become extremely popular among collectors. This release features the White Lion of Mortimer. It was struck from 1 oz of .9999 fine gold at the British Royal Mint.
Striking White Lion of Mortimer Design by Jody Clark
The obverse features a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. Clark shows the monarch wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem and earrings. Her name and abbreviated title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D" (Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the faith) are inscribed along the rim, as is the coin's face value, "100 POUNDS."
Clark also designed the reverse, which features the White Lion of Mortimer. The image was first used by Earl of March Roger Mortimer and was passed down to the House of York. Clark's design of the roaring lion brings attention to its mane and its tail, as well as the shield that it balances. The shield bears the white rose of York and the rays of the sun. The design is encircled by a rim frame on which the name of the creature, "WHITE LION OF MORTIMER," the weight and purity of the coin, "1 OZ FINE GOLD 999.9," and the date, "2020," are inscribed.
