The 2019 Queen's Beasts Silver Unicorn of Scotland coin is the fourth 10 oz Silver Queen's Beasts coin from the Royal Mint. Add the fourth coin of this exciting 10 coin series to your cart today!
At the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, 10 heraldic beasts stood guard. The original Queen’s Beasts, sculpted by James Woodford RA for the coronation ceremony held in Westminster Abbey in 1953, each stand six feet tall. The heraldic creatures symbolized the various strands of royal ancestry brought together in a young woman about to be crowned queen. Each proud beast, used as a heraldic badge by generations that went before her, was inspired by the King’s Beasts of Henry VIII that still line the bridge over the moat at his Hampton Court Palace.
Today, The Queen’s Beasts can be found at the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec, while Portland stone replicas, also carved by James Woodford, watch over Kew Gardens in the United Kingdom. But these mythical, ancient creatures such as the lion, griffin, falcon, bull, yale, greyhound, dragon, unicorn and horse have gone on to inspire the highly-praised new talent, Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark.
An enduring symbol of strength and beauty, it’s easy to see how the unicorn came to be used in heraldry. It first appeared on Scottish heraldry in the twelfth century, after William I created an early form of the Scottish coat of arms. James I of England, who united the English and Scottish thrones, chose the Scottish Unicorn to join the Lion of England to support the Royal Arms. They have supported this shield, which symbolizes the sovereignty of Her Majesty The Queen and represents the unity of the United Kingdom, ever since.

This is a huge coin. Its the diameter of a coaster and about as thick as the 2oz silver of the same design. It looks really nice, with shiny reverse proof-like qualities. This series is a grand slam for the art and shows just how good the royal mint is.

I've recently become aware of the Queens Beasts series collection. I liked the shiney polished mirror like accents on the silver Brittanias. I searched APMEX and saw the 9999 silver Queens Beasts. Love at first sight! This coin is beautiful! I've bought five of the 10oz. coins currently available. The 10oz silver Queens Beasts are highly collectable. The first 3 are hard to find. I can't wait to get the last 5 in the series. APMEX is my go to dealer!!!
