A Must-Have for Any Collector

This is the third highly anticipated issue in wildly popular The Royal Mint Queen's Beast series has a stunning depiction of the Red Dragon of Wales. 

The design of these Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated coins features a dragon rearing up over a shield, which bears 4 leopards. Around the edge of the face reads Red Dragon of Wales 2018.

The reverse features the fifth portrait of The Queen to be used on British legal tender coins. It has a face value of £5.  Both the obverse and reverse were designed by noted Royal Mint coin designer Jody Clark.

The gold and silver Proof coins are packaged in a charming display box accompanied by a booklet that was produced in collaboration with Clive Cheeseman, the Richmond Herald at the College of Arms. The Brilliant Uncirculated is presented in a colourful and informative fold-out wallet.

About The Design

Wales has cherished the dragon as its national symbol for centuries. Historians estimate that its earliest usage may have been as far back as 829 AD.

A symbol of strength, power, and wisdom, the dragon emblem was famously used by Owen Tudor, grandfather of King Henry VII. Henry himself adopted the symbol at the Battle of Bosworth Field, the last significant battle in the War of the Roses.

The Red Dragon of Wales is the third release in the collection. The design was inspired by centuries of tradition, combined it with contemporary designs.

“Although the dragon isn’t a real creature, I could still take inspiration from real animals. I researched lizards, crocodiles and snakes and tried lots of different approaches until I got the look I wanted. I wanted the beasts in the collection to feel fantastical but also have realistic elements. I think the static shield at the centre of the coin gives a contrast to the beast, with the dragon’s tail and claws curling around the shield giving the design a sense of movement,” Jody Clark, Royal Mint coin designer.

Avoid disappointment and order your Royal Mint coins from an Official Royal Mint Distributor.
