The winner of the 2021 Lions Series in South Africa will be the recipients of the first perpetual trophy in the history of the British & Irish Lions.

It took more than 150 hours to make the trophy, which was hand-crafted by Thomas Lyte – Official Silverware Supplier to the British & Irish Lions – and stands 60cm tall and weighs 6.5kg. The main body of the trophy was handspun from a single sheet of sterling silver, while the base is handmade from sapele hardwood.

The trophy will be presented to the winner of the Lions Series and go into a trophy cabinet in either the northern or southern hemisphere, before reappearing in 2025 when the British & Irish Lions continue their storied history with a series in Australia.
