The Queen’s Beast Collection of coins from the Royal Mint debuted in 2016 with a 1 oz gold, 1/4 oz gold, and 2 oz silver coin. There are 10 designs scheduled to be released by the Royal Mint in this collection, each one representing the creatures carved into sculptures for display during Queen Elizabeth II’s official coronation ceremony in 1953.
As of 2017, the Royal Mint has released a total of 3 designs in the collection and you’ll now find a new platinum coin and 10 oz silver option in the Lion of England design. This is the perfect expansion of the series and offers something for everyone looking to buy silver.
All 2017 10 oz British Silver Queen’s Beast Lion Coins in this product listing are in BU condition. Coins in BU condition feature no signs of wear and tear, but you might notice minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the production process at the mint.
The reverse of all Queen’s Beast Lion coins includes the image of the Lion of England. One of the most revered images in the monarchy, the Lion of England in this design stands behind the heraldic shield of the kingdom on its hind legs, poised to strike out at any who threaten the United Kingdom.
On the obverse of the 2017 10 oz British Silver Queen’s Beast Lion coin you’ll find the fifth-generation depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy appears on the obverse of all British coinage and has been since she ascended to the throne in 1952. This design came from Jody Clark in 2015, who at 33 years old is the youngest designer from the mint to create Her Majesty’s effigy.
