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.
The Queen’s Beast series is a beautiful and striking set of coins, perfect for individuals looking to invest in gold bullion. One side features a stunning image of a heraldic beast designed by British designer Jody Clarke whilst the obverse side features Jody Clarke’s famous portrayal of Elizabeth Second. Gold Queen’s Beast Coins have a guaranteed purity of 999.9, making them an attractive investment for bullion investors.
