The Queen's Beasts 2018 - The Griffin Ten Ounce Fine Silver Bullion Coin | The Royal Mint

The Queen's Beasts 2018 - The Griffin Ten Ounce Fine Silver Bullion Coin

  • Struck in 999.9 fine silver
  • Minted to bullion standard, and packaged in a single coin capsule
  • The second in a series of ten designs that will celebrate each of the Queen’s Beasts
  • Both obverse and reverse by British Coin Designer Jody Clark, creator of the latest definitive portrait of The Queen on UK coinage

The Queen’s 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 Queen’s 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 Queen’s 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 Queen’s Beasts.
