The Majestic Unicorn of Scotland is the official heraldic beast of the kingdom of Scotland. Adopted in the 12th century in the first Scottish coat of arms, the unicorn was pulled into the British royal arms with the Lion of England by James I when he united the two thrones to form the United Kingdom.
2017 1 Kilogram Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coins are part of the greater Queen’s Beast Series. The Unicorn design is just the second release in the proof collection, while the bullion version of the coins had three designs available at this same point in time and did not include the Unicorn of Scotland.
The obverse of all 2017 1 Kilogram Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created by Jody Clark in July 2015, it is the fifth-generation image of Her Majesty to appear on British coinage. At 33 years of age, Clark is the youngest Royal Mint engraver ever to create Her Majesty’s effigy.
On the reverse of your Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coin is the Majestic Unicorn of Scotland. The mythical beast is depicted standing on its hind legs with its powerful frame standing up and protecting the Royal Banner of Scotland.
