British Classics The Queen's Beasts Silver bullion coin series celebrates the British Monarchy and the centuries of captivating heraldry that has been part of their narrative. Each animal of The Queen's Beasts is fashioned into 2 oz .9999 fine Silver coins beginning in 2016. At the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, 10 heraldic beasts stood guard. Plaster models were designed for the event, symbolizing the many strands of royal ancestry brought together in a young woman about to be crowned queen.
From Sculpture to Silver Coins Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark has reimagined The Queen's Beasts on each 2 oz .9999 fine coin. All of the 10 beasts will eventually adorn the reverse of these coins. The entire Queen's Beasts series will include designs of The Lion of England, The Griffin of Edward III, The Red Dragon of Wales, The Unicorn of Scotland, The White Horse of Hanover, The Yale of Beaufort and several more.
