25th February British Indian Ocean Territory.  Jacek Stacel - Poland
Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce a stunning new series of £2 Bi-Metal Coins each featuring one of the ten Queen's Beasts which is being issued on behalf of the British Indian Ocean Territory.  
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be celebrating her 95th Birthday in 2021 and we, therefore, felt that a series of coins featuring the Queen’s Beasts would be a perfect tribute to celebrate this event, a milestone that no other Monarch has reached.
The first coin in the exciting new collection features the Lion of England which is the crowned golden lion of England, which has been one of the supporters of the Royal Arms since the reign of Edward IV. The coin shows a shield next to the Lion showing the Arms of the United Kingdom as they have been since Queen Victoria’s accession in 1837.


25th February Turkey 1 Lirasi.  Jacek Stacel - Poland
