British & Irish Lions Iconic Captains Coin - Karl Mullen (Ire)

Type: Memorabilia

Having already led Ireland to their first-ever Grand Slam, two Triple Crowns, and two International Championship titles, hooker Karl Mullen was perhaps the natural choice to captain the British & Irish Lions on their first Tour after the Second World War.

A consultant gynecologist by trade, Mullen’s genial nature helped the tourists endear themselves to the public in New Zealand and Australia.

He missed two matches against New Zealand through injury but returned to help the Lions defeat Australia and also coached the forwards throughout the Tour.

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.
