Other Information

This coin is the second in the series of ten designs that celebrate each of The Queen’s Beasts. 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.

These coins fit the Double Thick 39mm - 2oz Silver Queen's Beasts Coin Capsule.

The photographs show the type of coin you will receive, not the exact item.
