In 2016, the Royal Mint issued the Queen’s Beast Series with two gold coin options and one silver coin. The 2 oz silver bullion coin was the first-ever bullion coin in this weight and it remained alone until one year later. In 2017, the Royal Mint expanded the bullion coins to feature these 10 oz silver coins and a 1 oz platinum coin as well.
The Black Bull of Clarence comes to the royal arms of Queen Elizabeth II through King Edward IV, the first king from the House of York. Edward IV’s reign came during the Wars of the Roses as the House of York went to war with the ruling House of Lancaster, whose leader was King Henry VI.
On the obverse of 2019 10 oz Silver British Queen’s Beast Black Bull Coins is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in a fifth-generation portrait created in 2015 by Jody Clark. This right-profile effigy shows the Queen wearing the Royal Diadem crown and captures her at the age of 89.
The reverse side of the 2019 Silver British Queen’s Beast Black Bull Coin includes the imposing design of the Black Bull. Used by Edward IV, his great-grandfather Roger Mortimer, and his brother Richard III, the Black Bull guards the quartered shield with the three lilies of France in two quadrants and the three lions of England in the other two quadrants.
Edward IV ruled England from 1461 to 1470 and was briefly removed from the throne by a resurgent King Henry VI who returned from exile in Scotland to remove Edward IV. Henry VI’s second reign was short though, as he was defeated in battle by the forces of Edward IV in 1471, imprisoned in the Tower of London, and eventually killed as Edward IV resumed his reign.
