New Releases from The Royal Mint are a Collector's Fairytale
The new Queen’s Beasts and Gold Britannia tell their own stories through intricate details collectors and investors around the world can appreciate. These beautiful releases from The Royal Mint are available now at APMEX!
The highly anticipated Queen’s Beasts Unicorn is the seventh release of the 10-coin Queen’s Beasts series. The obverse of this release, available in 10 oz Silver and 1 oz Platinum, features a majestic Unicorn, a supporter of Scotland, rearing behind its shield. The shield depicts the Royal Arms of Scotland, a lion ramping in his royal treasure bordered with fleur-de-lis.
The series, launched in 2016 by The Royal Mint, honors each Queen’s Beast and its extensive history of standing guard outside of Westminster Abbey during the coronation ceremony of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on June 2, 1953. These statues, each standing six-feet tall, depict the genealogy of The Queen and symbolize her various royal ancestors. The Unicorn of Scotland descended to Queen Elizabeth II through her 9th great-grandfather, King James VI of Scotland, who then became James I of England.
In addition to the new Queen’s Beast, The Royal Mint has also released the 2019 edition of their most popular series – the 1 oz Gold Britannia. This .9999 fine Gold coin displays the iconic image of Britannia symbolizing Britain’s history of strength and integrity. This series has been popular among investors and collectors since its introduction in 1987.
