Queen’s Beasts Gold Coins

The Queen’s Beasts are a series of coins taking inspiration from 10 heraldic statues that stood guard at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Each statue is said to represent a part of the Queen’s genealogy, with each heraldic beast representing a different part of her ancestry. The series of coins will feature every heraldic creature that was present at the coronation.

The first coin in the series to be released was the Lion of England coin which was issued back in 2016. Since then new editions have been released sporadically with the Black Bull of Clarence the latest coin to be issued earlier this year. The Black Bull of Clarence was first seen on the shield of King Edward VI and is said to represent power, strength, pride, and patriotism. Gold coins are available in weights of 1oz, 2oz and ¼ oz. Like other bullion coins produced by the Royal Mint, the standard 1oz gold coin has a face value of £100 and is classed as legal tender in the UK.

The History of the Queen’s Beasts

The History of the Queen’s Beasts

The Queen’s Beasts were positioned outside Westminster Abbey for the Queen’s coronation in 1953. Although the beasts themselves were colourless, each of them was shown supporting a coloured shield of arms bearing the badge of a family associated with Queen Elizabeth II’s ancestry. In 1967 the statues were painted to match their full heraldic colours and are now on display at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau. All ten beasts were sculpted in plaster by James Woodford. They are 6 feet tall and weigh 700lbs.
