In 2016, the Royal Mint of England issued a series of gold, silver, and platinum coins 800 years in the making. The Queen’s Beast Series celebrates the 10 heraldic beasts that were present in statue form at the 1953 coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II at Westminster Abbey. Known as the Queen’s Beasts, these creatures have been passed down to the Queen through hundreds of years of history of British Royals, from King Richard I in 1189 to Her Majesty’s reign in 2021.

Each of the beasts featured in the Queen’s Beast Series comes from the history of the Crown in England. King Richard I was the first to have a Royal Arms and adopt a given animal that would stand the test of time in this series. The Lion of England remains, to this day, the most important heraldic beast. Since then, ruling dynasties from the Plantagenets, Yorks, and Tudors to the House of Hanover have brought bests to the Royal Arms that were featured in this series.
All of these 2021 1 Kilo Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Collection Coins are available to you with individual packaging. The coins are encapsulated and presented within a display box. The packaging includes an outer shipper for the box and a Certificate of Authenticity from the mint.
On the obverse of 2021 Proof Silver Queen’s Beast Collection Coins, you will find the fifth-generation effigy of the Queen. Designed in 2015 by Jody Clark, this portrait sets the Queen in right-profile relief with the George IV State Diadem on her head.
The reverse field of the 2021 1 Kilo Proof British Queen’s Beast Collection Coin features the same effigy of the Queen in a smaller format at the very center of the coin. Surrounding the Queen on this side are all 10 beasts in the collection, from the Lion of England to the White Horse of Hanover and the White Greyhound of Richmond.
