When Queen Elizabeth I died in 1603, England was without a clear heir. Elizabeth I never married and never had any children. Her closest living relative was King James VI of Scotland, the son of Mary, Queen of Scots, who herself was the cousin of Elizabeth I. James was offered the crown and ascended to the throne in 1603, unifying the crowns of England and Scotland as King James I of England.

All of the 2018 2 oz Silver British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coins in this product listing come to you with a near-perfect certification. The Mint State 69 certification indicates coins with full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Acceptable flaws at this grading level include minuscule contact marks or hairlines found only outside of the primary focal points of the silver coin.

The obverse of 2018 Silver British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coins features the latest effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is the longest-reigning British monarch in history, surpassing the reign of her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria I. This right-profile portrait is the fifth-generation design of Elizabeth II to feature on British coins. It was created in 2015 by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint of England.

On the reverse of 2018 2 oz Silver Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coins is the Unicorn of Scotland. The beast is often used to portray either strength and ferocity or purity and innocence. The unicorn featured here stands on its hind legs supporting the shield from the Scottish royal coat of arms. Depicting a single rampant lion, this shield was adopted by Scotland in the 13th century during the reign of Alexander III and has not changed since that time.
