Obverse includes the image of Queen Elizabeth II. The third coin in the Queen's Beast series. Features the mighty Red Dragon of Wales clutching a shield with its claws.
The Celtic dragon represents sovereignty and power. The Welsh dragon was used in the Royal Arms in the sixteenth century and the Red Dragon of Cadwallader is the emblem on the national flag of Wales. The red dragon gained popularity due to it supposed link of being the battle standard of King Arthur and other ancient Celtic leaders.Its association with these leaders along with other evidence from archeology, literature, and documentary history led many to suppose that it evolved from an earlier Romano-British national symbol. During the reigns of the Tudor monarchs, the red dragon was used as a supporter in the English Crown's coat of arms. This item is in the category "Coins & Paper Money\Bullion\Silver\Coins".
