The coins are considered to be highly collectible by both the investor and the collector of coins featuring the Queens Beasts.
The Red Dragon of Wales was introduced into the British Royal family through Henry VII. His grandfather, Owen Tudor, used the image as a badge symbol. The Red Dragon of Wales features the coat of arms that was last in use by the very last Prince of Wales, Llywelyn ap Gruffudd.
The origins Red Dragon of Wales is rooted in the ancient myths of dragons. To the people of Britain, dragons were ferocious beasts that should be feared. With their power to breathe fire and destroy villages, armies, and whole kingdoms, the dragon was definitely feared amongst all. The dragon was ultimately adopted as a symbol of wisdom and power amongst the British monarchs.
The obverse design of the 2018 Proof British Queens Beast Dragon 5 oz Silver Coin features the right-profile effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This fifth-generation effigy was designed by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint. Her Majesty has been featured on British coinage since 1952. She is the longest-reigning monarch in the history of England.
The reverse design of the 2018 Proof British Queens Beast Dragon 5 oz Silver Coin features the image of the Red Dragon of Wales. With deep roots going back to 6th-century tales of a dragon of Cadwallader, the Red Dragon has been the official symbol of Wales since 1959.
