British & Irish Lions Iconic Captains Coin - John Dawes (Wal)

Type: Memorabilia

Centre John Dawes is the only man to have led The British & Irish Lions on a victorious Tour to New Zealand, guiding the tourists to a 2-1 triumph in 1971 after drawing the final Test 14-14 in Auckland.

Those were the Welshman’s only four Lions Test caps, but he certainly made his impression after leading from the front to keep the All Blacks at bay throughout.

Dawes, who returned to New Zealand as Lions coach in 1977, also never lost to England during his international career, as well as leading Wales to 1971 Five Nations Grand Slam victory.

The stunning red polygon design is produced from the latest and most current Lions branding.

Each coin is forged from solid brass with an antique bronze finish. Each coin weighs approx. 35g and measures 44mm in diameter x 3mm thick.
