2020 Queens Beasts White Lion of Mortimer 2oz Silver Bullion Coin

The 2020 Queens Beasts White Lion of Mortimer 2oz Silver Bullion Coin comes in an individual protective Coin capsule.

COIN INFORMATION

The White Lion of Mortimer is the eighth release in the collection and the second lion to feature in this series. Unlike the fierce Lion of England, the White Lion sits uncrowned, with its tail between its legs, a pose representing loyalty and discipline.

Royal Mint product designer Jody Clark has portrayed the White Lion of Mortimer side-on to emphasise the most important parts of the Lion’s story – its mane, tail and shield.

The White Lion of Mortimer was inherited by The Queen from Edward IV who inherited the creature from his grandmother, heiress of the Mortimers. Edward sometimes used the White Lion as a supporter of his Royal Arms.

The White Lion holds a shield bearing the white rose of York combined with the sun’s golden rays – a symbol important to Edward IV, who saw the sun as a sign of good luck in battle Unlike the Lion of England, the White Lion of Mortimer bears no crown with blue tongue and claws rather than red. Heraldic lions are often ‘rampant’, standing with forepaws raised, but the Lion of Mortimer is often shown sitting rather like a tamed dog with its tail between its legs.

The White Lion holds a shield with a ‘white rose en soleil’, a white rose on a golden sun, a combination of emblems used by both Edward IV and Richard III. The Queen’s father, George VI used this badge when he was Duke of York.

  1. Mphipps

    It isn’t quite as good as the Lion Of England but it’s a still strikingly beautiful design nonetheless in my opinion,i reckon it’s better than the previous couple releases for sure,very nice indeed and it’s looks incredible sitting next to all the other releases,thanks a lot Martin for the incredibly SPEEDY delivery and professional service as always ☺

  2. Peter

    It is good. Quality is good. like Mphipps said not the best or as good as the other coins in the series such as the lion, Griffin or dragon. I am hoping the last two will be better. Martin as always a10 star service. Thanks.

  3. Gavvas

    Much better than some of the recent releases in this series as said above, delivered next day and unmarked, thank you Martin
