The fantastical Unicorn of Scotland

Captured in one ounce of fine silver

For centuries heraldry has represented power and royalty, and is closely interwoven with the story of Britain’s kings and queens. This new collection explores The Queen’s heritage and how her ancestry is represented by the fierce royal protectors that guarded the entrance to her coronation. Now, more than six decades later, in the year that Her Majesty marked her Sapphire Jubilee and as the House of Windsor celebrates its 100th anniversary, The Queen’s Beasts have been reimagined for a new era of her reign.

Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark has celebrated Her Majesty’s Scottish heritage with a design for the Unicorn of Scotland. His dynamic interpretation of the mythical beast appears on this one ounce coin, struck in 999 fine silver and finished to Proof standard. Presented in a Royal Mint case, the coin comes with a booklet produced in association with Clive Cheesman, Richmond Herald at the College of Arms.
