This one ounce platinum bullion coin is a new addition to The Queen’s Beasts Collection. Inspired by ancient symbols of power and identity, the range brings to life the ten imposing statues that lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen.
The unicorn first appeared on Scottish heraldry in the twelfth century, after William I created an early form of the Scottish Royal arms. James I of England, who united the kingdoms of England and Scotland, chose the Scottish Unicorn to join the Lion of England in supporting the Royal Arms. The pair have appeared together ever since.
Following the success of previous coins featuring the unicorn, this platinum one ounce edition features the same original design by Jody Clark. Shackled, but not cowed, it captures the majesty of Scotland’s national animal.
This bullion coin from The Queen’s Beasts Collection is also available as a gold one ounce and quarter-ounce edition and a silver ten-ounce and two-ounce edition.
