This is the third issue in the Queen's Beasts series and features the Welsh Red Dragon. Previously only struck in precious metals, The Queen’s Beasts are now available also in Brilliant Uncirculated quality.

The proud and ancient battle standard of the Welsh is The Red Dragon (Y Ddraig Goch) and consists of a red dragon, passant (standing with one foot raised), on a green and white background. The oldest recorded use of the dragon to symbolise Wales is in the Historia Brittonum, written around AD 829, but it is popularly supposed to have been the battle standard of King Arthur and other ancient Celtic leaders. Its association with these leaders along with other evidence from archaeology, literature, and documentary history led many to suppose that it evolved from an earlier Romano-British national symbol.

Each coin is presented in packaging that has been specially designed for these editions colourful, informative fold-out wallets that display the coins and capture the imagination.
