Silver White Lion Queens Beasts
This is a pre-owned 2oz silver bullion coin from The Royal Mint. It represents the eighth release in the exclusive series of ten silver coins. Coins are sent in a sachet, with orders in multiples of ten coming in tubes, and orders of 200 coins being packed in an official box.
This exciting new coin is struck to 999.9 purity silver and contains 2oz of the precious metal. Being larger than the standard 1oz silver coins allows for detailed coin design. With a face value of £5 Sterling, the coin qualifies as UK legal tender. Rather than use it to purchase goods, buyers benefit from legal tender coins being free from Capital Gains Tax, so any profits made are tax free. Coins are produced to bullion finish so they benefit from great value.
The know familiar fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by renowned designer Jody Clark adorns the front of the White Lion coin. This portrait stands out due to the dimpled background upon which it sits. The £5 denomination is confirmed around the edging.
The reverse of the silver coin differentiates it from the other coins in the Queens Beasts series. Taking pride of place in the centre of the coin is the original depiction of Lion of Mortimer, clutching a heraldic shield adorned with a rose encircled by a golden sun. This combination features on badges for both Richard III and Edward IV. Not to be confused with the previously released Lion of England Queens Beast which was crowned.
