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. Taking inspiration from the original statues, the Royal Mint has created the sense of strength and courage the beasts were intended to convey starting with a fierce lion; the first in a series of ten designs that will in turn celebrate each of The Queen's Beasts.
The latest release in The Queen’s Beasts Collection is the Unicorn of Scotland. Inspired by ancient symbols of power and identity, the collection brings to life the ten imposing statues that lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen.
Following the success of the Lion of England, the Griffin of Edward III and the Dragon of Wales, we’re excited to reveal The Unicorn of Scotland One Ounce Fine Gold Bullion Coin, featuring another original design by acclaimed coin designer Jody Clark.
The Queen's Beasts - The Unicorn of Scotland One Ounce Fine Gold Bullion Coin is also avaiable to purchase in tubes of 10 coins.
A VERY COLLECTABLE COIN AT BULLION PRICES. FOR DELIVERY FROM 21st APRIL
