The initial release of the Queen’s Beast Series was the Lion of England, a stalwart depiction on the nation’s coat of arms and the Royal Arms for hundreds of years now. One of the accompanying figures that has appeared along with the Lion of England in British heraldry is the Unicorn of Scotland.
Known as the Majestic Unicorn of Scotland, the animal’s beauty and majesty represent the nature of Scotland and was originally chosen for the Scottish royal arms by William I in the 12th century. When James I of England united the thrones as the United Kingdom of England and Scotland, he joined the Unicorn with the Lion of England in the Royal Arms.
On the reverse face of the 2017 1 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 British Silver 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 and made Clark the youngest engraver (at 33 years old) to create the Queen’s effigy.
Each of these 2017 1 oz Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coins is available with a Royal Mint box, and is part of the exciting collection of Queen’s Beast coins. Just 6,250 coins are available in total in this release, so don’t hesitate to act!
