Capturing the majesty of one of the foremost beasts of English heraldry, this 38.61mm British legal tender £5 honours the Griffin of King Edward III.

Part lion, part eagle, the griffin combines the courage of the king of beasts and the air, to create a creature more powerful than either. In heraldry, the griffin is a sentinel, often standing guard on roofs and doors, and is a guardian of sacred objects and a talisman against evil. First used as a royal beast by Edward III, the epitome of medieval kingship, the griffin’s coronation shield depicts Windsor Castle, where Edward founded the Order of the Garter in 1348.
