The histories of Great Britain and its monarchs are as rich as nearly any sovereign country on Earth.

Coin collectors have long prized the deeply historical depictions crowning coins struck by the British Royal Mint.

This mint itself comes with an impressive history; the state-run mint has been producing coins for over a thousand years. Images struck onto coins by the Royal Mint have come to symbolize historic moments in British Empire and its leading families.

The 2021 British 10 Oz Silver Queen’s Beasts White Lion carries on this tradition. The Queen’s Beasts are a series of ten sculptures created to commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, who became Queen of England way back in 1953. This latest 2021 coin is the eighth iteration of this coin; each version depicts a different one of the ten beasts that represented and celebrated Queen Elizabeth’s exciting 1953 coronation. 

 

Key Features: 

  • 10 Ounces .9999 fine silver.
  • Backed and minted by the British government. 
  • Obverse design: A bust of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the value of the coin. 
  • Reverse design: The White Lion of Mortimer.
  • Ships in original Royal Mint clear capsule.
  • Eligible for IRA self-holding. 

 

It’s hard to talk about this coin without exploring the rich historical context behind its intricate reverse-side depiction. Like all of the Queen’s Beasts, the White Lion of Mortimer invokes the historical ancestry of the Queen. This particular Beast is inspired by the lineage of Edward IV. On the 10 Oz Coin, the Beast is surrounded by both the white rose and the sun, which are images also shown on the seals of Edward IV and Richard III. 

 

It’s not particularly common to see coins with this high amount of pure silver. At 10 Oz, bullion collectors can use this coin to seriously expand the total value of their collection with this expensive piece. As always, this coin by the Royal Mint also functions as legal tender backed by Sovereign Great Britain. This piece is worth ten British pounds. But for most bullion enthusiasts, trading this coin for ten pounds of goods or services would be foolish, considering its high collectability. 

 

The Queen’s Beasts series is also uniquely collectable because each piece belongs to a larger collection. After all, the entire purpose of the original Queen’s Beasts sculptures was to capture the complex genealogy of the incoming Queen. It is likely that a full collection of these Royal Mint releases will eventually accrue additional value as a collection with a comprehensive historical vision. 

 

Purchasing a collectable silver coin from the Royal Mint is always a relatively safe investment. The centuries-old mint is known for its high-purity strikes and intricate imagery on its coins. In addition to holding value from its official backing by the Crown and the British government, bullion enthusiasts will be impressed by the timeless imagery of the majestic Queen’s Beast White Lion represented on this unique 10 Oz coin.
