Add the third outstanding coin of The Royal Mint's hugely popular Queen's Beasts series to your collection.

The 2018 Red Dragon of Wales £5 coin features a fearsome 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 coins. Both the obverse and reverse were designed by noted Royal Mint coin designer Jody Clark.

The exquisite design is captured on a Brilliant Uncirculated cupro-nickel coin. It's packaged in a display sleeve with a vibrant design inspired by heraldry.

The Red Dragon of Wales

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

The Royal Mint coin designer Jody Clark has taken centuries of tradition and combined it with contemporary design to create a series of dynamic reverse designs.
