Lion Coins


Here are two relevant Web sites:

  • Doug Smith has put together a Lions on Coins page about lions on ancient Greek and Roman coins.
  • The Money Museum has some pages about lion coins through the ages, though it too focuses heavily on ancients. Click on "english site" at the upper right, "Coin tours," to the left, then "The Lion -- King also on Coins" in the middle.)

Here are two relevant journal articles:

  • Coin News, Feb. 1995, "The Lion," Adrian Lewis, pp. 28-29
  • World Coins, May 1973, "Heraldic Lions Popular on Coins," L.E. Clow, pp. 678-694
