Symbolizing power and identity, these 6-foot tall statues once lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey. Today, stone replicas of the beasts now stand watch over Kew Gardens in the UK. The Red Dragon of Wales perches behind a shield on the reverse, recreating the third design in this 10-part Queens Beast Series on a new silver coin with a larger weight.

This is the fifth portrait of Her Majesty to be used on coinage during her historically long reign. The design, by Jody Clark, has recently been enhanced with a new guilloche design.
