Spanning an immense 65mm, this 99.9% pure Red Dragon Silver Proof is a coin of epic proportions. From the British Royal Mint, it features the third design in the widely-popular Queen's Beasts series, and would form an imposing centrepiece to any collection. Indeed, the only thing tiny about this British legal tender stunner is the limited edition of its release: just 500 have been issued!
Struck from 5oz of 99.9% silver
Characterised by its imposing 65mm flan, this dazzling release has been struck from a whopping five ounces of 99.9% silver. Not only is there tremendous quantity on offer, there's quality, too: crafted to the Royal Mint's rigorous Proof standards, this commanding, 156.295g issue needs to be seen to be believed.
A numismatic masterpiece (on both sides of the coin!)
With acclaimed Royal Mint Engraver Jody Clark at the helm of both reverse and obverse designs, this sensational Proof offers a sense of continuity of aesthetic rarely afforded to modern coinage.
Clark's work has been seen in British purses since 2015, when his design of a new portrait of Queen Elizabeth II began to appear on coinage. The Dragon motif on the reverse of this coin achieves an almost lifelike degree of realism. "Although the dragon isn't a real creature, I could still take inspiration from real animals," he notes. Despite the fanciful subject matter, the resulting depiction is rooted firmly in reality - and gracing the lustrous 65mm canvas on offer here, is destined to delight.
The Welsh emblem, in British legal tender
Upon the obverse, Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II - the winning submission he'd entered anonymously into a competition to design a new effigy - confirms each Proof's status as official legal tender of Britain.
Limited edition Royal Mint release
Housed in informative Royal Mint packaging, this sensational issue is a must for fans of the Queen's Beasts series, or indeed of official British coinage altogether. However, with just 500 of this strictly limited edition presentation released worldwide, we recommend immediate action to avoid missing out.
