A new coin series exploring the fantastical beasts of heraldry

First in the series of ten £5 coins are the Lion of England and the Unicorn of Scotland. Both of these beasts are well known as supporters of the Royal Arms – not just a royal badge, but symbols of the monarchy and of the United Kingdom that appear in many places, including British passports. The Unicorn of Scotland is a powerful symbol of strength and grace that appears all around the United Kingdom. This mystical beast has been captured on this £5 coin that has been finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard.

The coins were previously only available in precious metals, but the release of the collection in Brilliant Uncirculated editions brings them to a new audience. Each coin is presented in packaging that has been specially designed for the Brilliant Uncirculated editions of The Queen’s Beasts Collection – colourful, informative fold-out wallets that display the coins and capture the imagination.
