COIN INFORMATION

The 2021 UK Queen’s Beasts White Lion of Mortimer 10 oz Silver Coin is the eighth release from the exclusive Royal Mint bullion range, featuring an original reverse design. The coin’s reverse features a stylised version of the White Lion of Mortimer, holding a shield. The year-date and ‘White Lion of Mortimer’ also feature.

This ten ounce silver bullion coin is the Eighth addition to The Queen’s Beasts bullion range. Inspired by ancient symbols of power and identity, the range brings to life the ten imposing statues that lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen.

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.
