The Unicorn of Scotland is the fourth design issued in the bullion release of Queen’s Beast coins following, in order, the Lion of England, Griffin of Edward III, and the Red Dragon of Wales. Curiously enough, the Unicorn of Scotland has already appeared in this series in one form as the second release in the proof collection of coins.
Scotland’s representative creature, the unicorn is a mythical beast believed by past societies to be extremely rare and possess the power to heal. Adopted by the Scots under William I in the 12th century, the Unicorn of Scotland is today part of the greater British Royal Coat of Arms alongside the Lion of England.
On the reverse of the 2018 ¼ oz British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Gold Coin you’ll find the image of the Unicorn of Scotland. It is depicted standing on its hind legs with a massive chain linked to a crown around its neck that leads back down to the royal shield with the Lion of England upon its face.
The obverse of all British Queen’s Beast Gold Coins features the latest effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s portrait on these coins comes from Jody Clark, who at 33 years old became the youngest Royal Mint engraver to develop the Queen’s portrait for British coinage in 2015.
