2018 Great Britain 10 oz Silver Queen's Beast (Griffin) Coin .9999 Fine BU In Cap
The highly anticipated new release of the Queen’s Beasts series, the 2018 Great Britain 10 oz Silver Griffin Coin is now available for purchase from Bullion Exchanges. The exceptionally beautiful Queen’s Beasts series was introduced by the British Royal Mint in 2016 by striking the “Lion of England” coin. The coins from this wonderful series carry on their reverse one of the ten heraldic beasts that stood at the Queen’s coronation in 1953. Each of these beasts also supports a badge of arms of the family associated with Her Majesty’s ancestry. The first coin released was later followed by the “Griffin of Edward III” and the “Red Dragon of Wales” coins.
The series will also include the Black Bull of Clarence, the Falcon of the Plantagenets, the Yale of Beaufort, the White Lion Mortimer, the White Horse of Hanover, and the Unicorn of Scotland coins. The first of this globally popular series was released in 2016, with plans to continue through September 2020. In an homage to the past and present monarchy, these heraldic beasts represent the ten that flanked the entrance of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. They tie her present reign to that of King Henry VII, whose moat at Hampton Court Palace still has these same beasts standing guard.
Designed by Jody Clark, the griffin depicted on this coin was the private seal of Edward III. The Griffin is the king of beasts two times over, as it has the body of a lion and the head of an eagle.
