The Unicorn of Scotland is a powerful symbol of strength that has appeared as part of Scottish heraldry since the 12th century. Later adopted into the British Royal Coat of Arms, the Unicorn is a graceful beast that appears throughout the modern United Kingdom as a symbol of the monarchy on the royal bad as well as other administrative elements, such as British passports.
All 2018 1 oz British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Gold Coins in this release are in BU condition. Coins in BU condition show no signs of wear and tear, though they are not without minor flaws. You may notice breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or potential contact marks as result of production at the mint.
On the obverse of all British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Gold Coins is Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy. British monarchs always appear on the obverse of national coinage, from circulation currency to bullion and commemorative coins. This particular design of Queen Elizabeth II depicts Her Majesty at age 89 and is the fifth-generation portrait that was completed in 2015.
The reverse of the 2018 1 oz British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Gold Coin features the image of the powerful Unicorn of Scotland. With a fierce look upon its face and power in its frame, the Unicorn stands on its hind legs behind the British royal badge, which includes the Lion of England upon the shield.
Now located in Wales, the Royal Mint began life as the London Mint during the 8th century. One of Europe’s oldest operating mint systems, the Royal Mint was once housed in the Tower of London and today strikes coinage not just for the United Kingdom, but also an additional 60 other countries around the globe.
