The Queen’s Beast Collection from the Royal Mint takes collectors back in time by reproducing 10 of the animal statues featured in Westminster Abbey during the 1953 coronation ceremony of a young Queen Elizabeth II. These animals will feature on various coins, both gold and silver, released by the Royal Mint in the years to come.
All 2017 2 oz Silver British Queen’s Beast Dragon Coins in this listing earned near-perfect certification. An MS69 coin from the NGC has full, original mint luster, but also includes a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are limited in scope to miniscule hairlines or contact marks outside the primary focal areas.
As an Early Release coin, the NGC verifies that these Silver Queen’s Beast products were received within 30 days of their release date by the Royal Mint. Coins must arrive in that timeframe at the NGC depository or an approved third-party facility.
On the obverse of the British Queen’s Beast Griffin Silver Coin is the latest right-profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s image appears on the obverse of all British coinage, and this 2015 creation from Jody Clark is the latest enhancement of the Queen’s portrait.
The reverse of all 2017 2 oz British Silver Queen’s Beast Dragon Coins includes the image of the Red Dragon of Wales. The dragon itself was originally used by Owen Tudor, grandfather of Henry VII, as a badge symbol, and the Red Dragon of Wales includes the coat of arms used by the last native Prince of Wales, Llywelyn ap Gruffudd.
