£5: The Lion of England - 2018 reissue


Years of issue:

2018

Coin Information:

This coin was reissued in 2018 to celebrate the England Football Team's achievement in the World Cup. The Lion of England is a traditional symbol of bravery, strength and valour and is one of the earliest animals to appear in royal emblems. The patriotic design by Jody Clark is one of the best in years, harking back to a more traditional style and features the Lion of England which takes a fierce, rampant stance. The obverse features the fifth portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, also designed by Jody Clark.
