The Queen's Beasts CoinsAt the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, ten heraldic beasts stood guard. Plaster models were created for the occasion, symbolizing the various strands of royal ancestry brought together in a young woman about to be crowned queen. Today, The Queen's Beasts can be found at the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec, while Portland stone replicas watch over Kew Gardens in the United Kingdom. Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark has reimagined The Queen's Beasts taking form in .9999 fine Silver coins.
Each of the 10 beasts will adorn the reverse of these Silver coins. Once the Queen’s Beast coin series is complete, all of the following designs will be represented: The Lion of England, Griffin of Edward III, Red Dragon of Wales, Unicorn of Scotland, Black Bull of Clarence, Falcon of the Plantagenets, Yale of Beaufort, White Lion of Mortimer, White Horse of Hanover and White Greyhound of Richmond.
