Among them is the unicorn, a mythical horse with a single horn protruding from the center of its head that is known for its powerful majesty and beauty. It is also the official heraldic creature of Scotland and features in the Queen’s Beast Series from the Royal Mint.

These coins include silver, gold, and platinum options with bullion and proof versions.
The proof series has taken a different release schedule than the bullion coins, introducing the Unicorn of Scotland second in its release lineup, while the bullion coins started with the Lion of England, Griffin of Edward III, and the Red Dragon of Wales. Proof coins in the series are available in silver and gold, with four weights in each precious metal.
The reverse of all Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coins includes the depiction of the Unicorn of Scotland. Shown standing on its hind legs, this powerful beast has its front hooves above the Royal Banner of Scotland.
On the obverse of the 2017 10 oz Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coin is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty appears in right-profile relief on all British coinage, and this 2015 design from Jody Clark is the latest fifth-generation depiction of the Queen.
