About British Queen’s Beasts Platinum Coins

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 sought-after gold and silver ranges.

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 molding 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.

As the collection’s obverse carries Queen Elizabeth II’s profile, each coin is legal tender in the United Kingdom. As well as this, British currency is highly valued in hundreds of countries throughout the world. The 1oz platinum Queen’s Beasts coins have a face value of £100 but the face value is only be a fraction of the coin’s real worth on the open market.

Design of British Queen’s Beasts Platinum Coins

The Queen’s Beasts platinum coins are miniature versions of original sculptures created for the Queen’s coronation at Westminster Abbey. They have been intricately reimagined by the Royal Mint’s lead engraver, Jody Clark, to form the coins’ reverse.

Each of the 10 designs represents the history of the crown of England, Great Britain, and the United Kingdom. Each design was minted and released at regular periods, with a final edition in 2020. The release schedule is as follows:

– The Lion of England (March 2016)
– The Griffin of Edward III (November 2016)
– The Red Dragon of Wales (March 2017)
– The Unicorn of Scotland (September 2017)
– The Black Bull of Clarence (March 2018)
– The Falcon of the Plantagenets (September 2018)
– The Yale of Beaufort (September 2018)

– The White Horse of Hannover (March 2020)

Her Majesty’s profile used by the Royal Mint is the “Fifth Portrait” design. Again created by Jody Clark, this depiction of Queen Elizabeth II recognizes her reign at the time of her Sapphire Jubilee in 2017.
