Each of the 2017 10 oz Silver British Queen’s Beast Lion Coins in this product listing is in BU condition. Coins in this condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the coining process.
The Queen’s Beast Collection of coins from the Royal Mint debuted in 2016 with a 1 oz gold, 1/4 oz gold, and 2 oz silver coin. There are 10 designs scheduled to be released by the Royal Mint in this collection, each one representing the creatures carved into sculptures for display during Queen Elizabeth II’s official coronation ceremony in 1953.
The reverse of all Queen’s Beast Lion coins includes the image of the Lion of England. One of the most revered images in the monarchy, the Lion of England in this design stands behind the heraldic shield of the kingdom on its hind legs, poised to strike out at any who threaten the United Kingdom.
On the obverse of the 2017 10 oz British Silver Queen’s Beast Lion coin you’ll find the fifth-generation depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy appears on the obverse of all British coinage and has been since she ascended to the throne in 1952. This design came from Jody Clark in 2015, who at 33 years old is the youngest designer from the mint to create Her Majesty’s effigy.
