The first Queen’s Beasts coin 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 Queen’s Beast coins are available in weights of 1oz, 2oz and ¼ oz. Like other bullion coins produced by the Royal Mint, the standard 1oz gold queen’s beasts coin has a face value of £100 and is classed as legal tender in the UK.
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. The fact they are British legal tender also means investors can make an unlimited amount of profit on them throughout the tax year without having to pay any kind of capital gains tax. For collectors inspired by the Royal Family or British tradition and heritage, the Queen’s Beasts collection represents a poignant piece of British history. Gold Queen’s Beasts coins are produced in relatively limited amounts and with only 10 coins scheduled to be released in the collection, many investors will look to collect the entire series. The coins themselves come in their own airtight plastic packaging for protection.

1oz Gold Queen’s Beast Unicorn

The 1oz Gold Queen’s beast Unicorn is the latest coin minted in the Royal Mint’s Queen’s Beast Collection.

This is a brand-new bullion finish coin, issued by the Royal Mint. Coins will be packaged loose for small quantities and may come in Royal Mint tubes of 10 for larger orders.

If you would like to protect your coins further, these coin capsules fit perfectly.

The Unicorn is the next in the list of the 10 statues that lined the entrance of Westminster Abbey in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen.

The Unicorn of Scotland follows the Lion of England, The Griffin of Edward III and the Dragon of Wales.

It is struck in 999.9 fine gold and is designed on both sides by Jody Clark, the Royal Mint coin designer. This in itself is unusual, with all other Royal Mint series featuring different designers for obverse and reverse. Like it’s Silver Unicorn version, this benefits the coin by having consistency in design. The silver bullion Beasts coins are also remarkable as they represented the first 2oz silver bullion coin to ever be produced in the UK. Coins are also minted in proof and platinum versions.

The face value of this coin is £100 but any profits made from its sale are not liable to Capital Gains Tax as it is UK legal tender.

The Queen’s Beasts

The Queen’s Beasts are a collection of 10 statues said to represent the genealogy of Queen Elizabeth II.

These statues stood in front of the entrance of Westminster Abbey for the Queen’s coronation.

Each beast has a shield bearing a badge or coat of arms from a family of the Queen’s ancestry and for the coronation, they were uncoloured except for their shield.

The 10 beasts are:

The Lion of England

The White Greyhound of Richmond

The Yale of Beaufort

The Red Dragon of Wales

The White Horse of Hanover

The White Lion of Mortimer

The Unicorn of Scotland

The Griffin of Edward III

The Black Bull of Clarence

The Falcon of the Plantagenets

These beasts were originally made for Henry VIII and his third Queen, Jane Seymour.

Each one is made in plaster, is 6 feet tall and weighs roughly 700lbs.

The shields are currently in the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau and although only the shield was originally coloured, they were fully painted for the celebrations of the Canadian federation in 1967.

Our expert opinion

Another stunning coin from the Royal Mint. Like other UK coins such as the Lunar series, the Queen’s Beasts coins can be classified as collectible as well as appealing to investors. The series varies from the Lunar and many other UK coins in that it’s release schedule is semi-annual, launching 2 new coins per year. Every other series or coin gets an annual release or update. This lends the series to being at the forefront of gold enthusiasts minds with a beautiful new coin released every 6 months.

The coins have an additional story to tell with their focus of the various beasts, which makes them different to other brand new coins such as the 2017 Sovereign. Premiums for the coins are slightly higher than the 1oz Britannia, but they may well fetch more in the future due to their collectability and appeal.

We’d suggest trying to own at least one of all the Queen’s Beasts series as full sets may well fetch a handsome fee in the future. For larger investments, consider combining the coins with the Lunar series, older Sovereigns to provide divisibility and Britannias for value.
