The origin of the Queen's Beasts dates back more than 1,000 years, when individual families and areas of England displayed their own emblems on flags and shields. These emblems were incorporated into the monarchy, and by the time of King Henry VIII, some of the 10 honored in this series were already established as representing the King. The designs from this series are taken from a set of sculptures prepared for Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953.The fierce Lion of England raises one paw while placing the other on the Royal Coat of Arms. The Queen and the proof's denomination grace the obverse. This coin has been graded a perfect PF70 by NGC and was one of the first 250 coins struck. Only 600 of these hefty silver Lion of England proofs were struck. This listing includes the slabbed coin only.
