APMEX Announces the Queen’s Beasts Platinum Coin

Platinum Queen's Beasts coin

APMEX, the nation’s largest Precious Metals e-retailer, is thrilled to announce the arrival of the first-ever 1 oz Platinum bullion coin from The Royal Mint.

When Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was crowned June 2, 1953, ten heraldic beast statues stood watch at the ceremony, representing the different houses joining in Her Majesty’s royal ancestry. Present that day, in plaster form, among these spectacular heraldic beasts was the Lion of England. The Royal Mint has been honoring the Queen’s Beasts on a series of 10 Gold and Silver coins featuring stylized versions of each of the heraldic statues displayed at the coronation. Due to the vast success of the Queen's Beasts bullion series, The Royal Mint has released the 2017 Great Britain 1 oz Platinum Queen's Beasts The Lion. This marks The Royal Mint’s first foray into Platinum bullion coins and the coin world is abuzz with excitement over this spectacular new product.

The 2017 1 oz Platinum Queen's Beasts coin, The Lion, would make an excellent purchase for a new collector or investor of Platinum. Commonly referred to as “rich man’s Gold,” Platinum is unique in its scarcity. Platinum is the rarest of the major Precious Metals and is in high demand for both personal adornment and industrial purposes. Particularly in the jewelry market, Platinum is experiencing a major surge because of its superior luster. Resistant to tarnish, Platinum is more durable than some other Precious Metals and is considered the height of luxury. Platinum’s qualities of scarcity, beauty and durability all translate into The Queen’s Beasts Platinum coin and the first-ever 1 oz Platinum bullion coin from The Royal Mint.

APMEX is pleased to offer the 1 oz Platinum Queen's Beasts The Lion for the consideration of esteemed Platinum buyers.
