All new from the Royal Mint, the Queens Beast collection features a total of 10 designs, with releases scheduled to run through 2021. For 2017-2020, there will be two designs released each year, with one apiece from 2016 and in 2021. These new 2017 1 oz British Gold Queens Beast Dragon Coins represent the third release, and second of 2017 in the collection.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz British Queens Beast Dragon Gold Coin is the image of the Red Dragon of Wales. The dragon is often depicted holding a shield bearing a lion in each quarter of it, which was the coat of arms for Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, the last true and native Prince of Wales.
The red dragon was a badge originally used by Owen Tudor, and is based upon the story of the dragon on Llewelyn the Lasts castle grounds. Henry VII took on the symbol in a nod to his supposed descent from the Cadwaladr.
The obverse includes the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II as referenced above. Her Majesty ascended to the British throne in 1952 following the death of her father, the king. Her coronation ceremony was held in 1953 and included 10 plaster statues of Queens Beasts.
