A key player in the international bullion market, The Royal Mint has long provided customers with the quality, accuracy and security they would expect from a world-leading mint. Now our established bullion portfolio continues to grow with a series of gold, silver, and platinum bullion coins for those searching for a new investment option. The Queens Beasts bullion range celebrates the British Monarchy and the centuries of fascinating heraldry that has been a part of their story.
At the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, ten heraldic beasts stood guard. The plaster models were created for the occasion, symbolising the various strands of royal ancestry brought together in a young woman about to be crowned queen. Today, The Queens Beasts can be found at the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec, while Portland stone replicas watch over Kew Gardens in the United Kingdom.
The coins will each depict one of The Queens Beasts, reimagined by Royal Mint coin designer Jody Clark. Jody also created the most recent definitive coinage portrait of Her Majesty to appear on United Kingdom coins. His bold interpretation of the Lion of England was the first to be released, now followed by the Griffin, associated with Edward III. This will be the second in a series of ten designs that will celebrate each of The Queens Beasts.
