Unlock the Mysteries of Heraldry in Precious Metal
The Queen’s Beasts appeared together for the first time in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen. Just 150 of these Black Bull of Clarence coins have been struck to Proof standard and as we celebrate the 65th anniversary of this momentous event, collectors will delight in owning this very special piece of royal history.
The Black Bull of Clarence has long been associated with Edward IV who became the first Yorkist king of England in 1461. The bull is a symbol of power and strength and it is believed that Edward’s army used the bull on their shields. The first appearance of the bull on the Royal Arms and on coins dates back to the 1560s when Elizabeth I ordered the recoinage of all silver coins.
