Since 2017 The Royal Mint has reimagined a number of Her Late Majesty The Queen's heraldic beasts through a series known as The Queen's Beasts Collection. This exciting series draws its inspiration from the ten Queen's Beasts statues that stood guard at Westminster Abbey on the day of The Queen's coronation in 1953. The statues’ sculptor, James Woodford, is also responsible for the famous Robin Hood statues at Nottingham Castle.

The Royal Mint’s Queen’s Beasts Collection has proven to be popular, with a number of editions having sold out over the years. The White Lion of Mortimer (sometimes known as the White Lion of March) is the seventh beast in the series. It comes to The Queen through Edward IV, the first of the Yorkist kings. The beast stands proudly beside a shield bearing the white rose of the House of York imposed over a shining sun.
