The Queens Beast Series from the Royal Mint of England has released its latest coin - The White Lion of Mortimer. It is the eighth design of the collection and second from the House of York.
The White Lion of Mortimer joins the Black Bull of Clarence as heraldic beasts from the House of York. The White Lion comes to Queen Elizabeth II through King Edward IV, the first monarch from the House of York. His grandmother, Anne de Mortimer, was the one responsible for passing the White Lion and associated symbols down to King Edward IV, and his brother King Richard III.
On the obverse of 2020 1 oz British Gold Queens Beast White Lion Coins is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fifth-generation effigy of Her Majesty to grace the obverse of British coinage and it was created in 2015 by Jody Clark. It has appeared on all British coins since 2016.
The reverse of 2020 British Gold Queens Beast White Lion Coins includes the image of the White Lion. The only lion in British heraldry alongside the Lion of England, the White Lion of Mortimer occasionally supported the Royal Arms during the reign of King Edward IV. It features along with the shield of the Mortimers, a design that includes a single white rose on a split field with sunburst rays behind it. This portion of the shield was often used by other monarchs as a personal badge, including King George VI, Queen Elizabeth IIs father.
