On the obverse of all British Gold Queen’s Beast Black Bull Coins is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is on the obverse of all British coinage, with this particular design created in 2015 by Royal Mint Engraver Jody Clark. This is the fifth-generation effigy of the Queen, and captures her figure in right-profile relief.
The reverse of the 2018 1 oz British Gold Queen’s Beast Black Bull Coin includes the Black Bull of Clarence. Introduced into the Royal Arms by King Edward IV, the first king from the House of York, the Bull was used by Edward IV and his brother Richard III. The design features a powerful bull standing behind a shield with the Royal Arms.
The Royal Arms design featured in this shield was used over 200 years and showcased dual claims by British kings to the thrones of England and France. Two quadrants bear the golden lions of England, while the other two quadrants feature the lilies of France.
