Queen’s Beast Series coins are based on the 10 statues of English heraldic beasts that stood guard over the coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II. Held at Westminster Abbey in 1953, these wooden carvings still exist today in the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec. Portland stone replicas carved by the original creator, James Woodford, are placed in the Kew Gardens in the United Kingdom.
On the obverse of the Silver British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coins, you’ll find the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty has featured on all British coinage, circulation and commemorative, since her coronation. She is Britain’s longest reigning monarch and the current longest reigning monarch in the world.
The reverse of the 2018 2 oz Silver British Queen’s Beast Unicorn Coin includes the image of the Unicorn of Scotland. Standing tall and proud behind the British royal badge, the unicorn was chosen by William the Lion (William I) during his reign as King of the Scots in the 12th century.
