The Queen’s Beasts – The Red Dragon of Wales 2018 UK 5oz Silver Proof Coin
Her Majesty The Queen is now the world’s longest reigning living monarch, and as she continues to reach new milestones in her remarkable reign, we look back to the day of her coronation when the beasts of heraldry stood guard over the new queen. The ten creatures that lined Her Majesty’s entry to Westminster Abbey symbolised centuries of ancestry and tradition.
