The unicorn is a majestic, mythical creature whose beauty and majesty was tethered to the people of Scotland by William I in the 12th century when he adopted the creature for the Scottish royal arms. When James I of England united both the crown of England and the crown of Scotland as the United Kingdom, he adopted the Unicorn of Scotland alongside the Lion of England as an enduring symbol of the two kingdom’s unity.
On the reverse face of the 2017 5 oz Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coin you’ll find the majestic Unicorn of Scotland. The beast is featured with a crown around its neck and a long chain flowing from that crown and wrapping around its figure. The beast stands on its hind legs with its front hooves above the Royal Banner of Scotland.
The obverse of all Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coins you’ll find Queen Elizabeth II’s right-profile portrait. Created in July 2015 by Jody Clark, this fifth-generation depiction is the latest in use on British coinage.
