The Red Dragon’s origins in the British Isles date to the sixth century in Wales. Early Welsh chronicles speak of the red dragon of Cadwallader, the legendary king of Gwynedd. Owen Tudor, the grandfather of King Henry VII of England, claimed Welsh heritage and used the red dragon in his personal shield.

When Henry VII ascended to the English throne and launched the House of Tudor dynasty, the red dragon became a prominent piece of English heraldry. The troops under Henry VII’s command at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 carried the red dragon on their standards. King Henry VIII, considered the father of the Royal Navy, used the red dragon on the standards of his Royal Navy ships.

On the reverse of 2017 2 oz Silver British Queen’s Beast Red Dragon Coins is the image of a powerful dragon supporting a shield. This quartered shield features a leopard in each quadrant and is reflective of the shield of Llewelyn ap Griffith, the last native Prince of Wales.

The obverse side of 2017 2 oz Silver British Queen’s Beast Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Aside from her deep connection to the Red Dragon through British heraldry, Elizabeth II is connected to the Red Dragon as she made the Red Dragon the official emblem of Wales in 1959 and assured its placement on the national flag.

These 2017 2 oz Silver British Queen’s Beast Dragon Coins are available to you in perfect condition from the NGC. Coins with a Mint State 70 certification showcase full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws of any kind present.
