Queen's Beasts Accessories | Royal Mint

As a young woman ascending the throne aged just 25, Queen Elizabeth II embraced the traditions of her ancestors. Flanking the entrance to Westminster Abbey on the day of her coronation were ten fantastical creatures – The Queen’s Beasts – imposing statues symbolising the strands of ancestry brought together in a young woman who was about to be crowned queen.

Jody Clark is a member of The Royal Mint’s Coin Design team and is the youngest designer to have created a definitive coinage portrait of Her Majesty The Queen, and has carefully interpreted Woodford’s pieces to create a collection of stunning coins, with the first launch being the Lion of England in 2016.

Now these beautiful coins have become the inspiration behind a new capsule collection of hallmarked gift items, comprising of cufflinks, tie pins and lapel pins, made in 925 sterling silver and 18 carat gold.
