)-- APMEX, Inc., the nation’s largest Precious Metals e-retailer, is excited to introduce the latest in The Royal Mint’s highly popular Precious Metal bullion Queen’s Beasts series – The Red Dragon of Wales. Plus, for a short time, be entered to win 150 oz of Silver to celebrate this new release.
In 2016, The Royal Mint introduced a new series celebrating the British Monarchy and the centuries of fascinating mythological beasts from the heraldry that has been a part of their story. This 10-coin series, produced in Gold, Silver and Platinum, will feature each of the 10 statues of the heraldic creatures that stood watch at Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953, representing the different houses joining in Her royal ancestry.
APMEX and The Royal Mint are now celebrating the 2018 10 oz Silver Red Dragon of Wales, a creature representative of sovereignty and power and featured on the battle standard of King Arthur and other ancient Celtic leaders, by giving away 15 of these stunning Silver coins to one lucky winner. Shop select 2018 Queen’s Beasts coins now through April 1, 2018, and be automatically entered to win.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity to our customers,” APMEX Director of Merchandising Ryan Boyles said. “Having the chance to not only introduce these impressive 10 oz Silver and 1 oz Platinum coins, but also being able to give away 150 oz of Silver to our customers, is something that stems from our close relationship with The Royal Mint. We hope our customers enjoy this newest Queen’s Beasts release and find it a fitting continuation of an already iconic series.”
Similar to other coins throughout the Queen’s Beasts series, this design is the work of Jody Clark, acclaimed coin designer at The Royal Mint. The reverse of the coin showcases the mighty Red Dragon of Wales clutching a shield. The obverse features the standard British design of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with a guilloché background.
