British & Irish Lions Iconic Captains Coin - Phil Bennett (Wal)

Type: Memorabilia

1977 captain Phil Bennett was renowned for having one of the most dazzling sidesteps in rugby, with the fleet-footed fly-half leaving defenders bamboozled on many an occasion.

The Welshman formed a deadly partnership with scrum-half Gareth Edwards for the British & Irish Lions and for their country, with both starring in the unbeaten Tour to South Africa in 1974.

Bennett took the armband for the following Tour of New Zealand in 1977, but was unable to repeat the feat as Lions went down 3-1, despite finishing top scorer in the Tests with 18 points to his name

The stunning red polygon design is a 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.
