First struck in 2016, the Queen’s Beasts coin collection is a unique opportunity to invest in British pageantry. With reverse designs based on heraldic beasts from medieval history, the coins are exquisitely crafted and made with a .9995 fineness. Since 2017, the Royal Mint has produced the platinum bullion range for the Queen’s Beasts collection to complement its highly gold and silver range.
History of British Queen’s Beasts Coins
When Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth was crowned at Westminster Abbey on the 2nd of June 1953, her procession was guarded by 10 beasts. The golden sculptures were the work of the renowned artist James Woodford RA, and are currently exhibited at the Canadian Museum of History. The 10 sculptures are now immortalised in the designs of the Queen’s Beasts coin collection.
Each of the Beasts in question represent a noble coat of arms of elite families that have played a significant role in moulding the British monarchy into what it is today. These range from royal armorial bearings to medieval noble families who fought for the crown. The coins are therefore a fascinating illustration of the British royal family’s historical journey.
