First in the ten-coin series, highly respected engraver, Jody Clark was selected to design the Queen’s Beasts Lion. The intricate detail captured on the image is nothing short of inspiring. Contributing greatly to the decades of British heritage represented in the 10 original painted-plaster statues of 1953, this magnificent coin has been highly praised.
Minted in high relief with highest purity and 2 oz weight, this silver bullion coin has become a highly treasured favorite among collectors and precious metals investors world-wide. The coin’s obverse displays Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and the 5 pounds face value. Quite interestingly, the Queen’s portrait was also designed by Jody Clark and adopted into British coinage since 2016. The reverse features a stylized and beautifully detailed image of the crowned Lion of England encircled with the inscriptions, Lion of England, 2 oz Fine Silver, 9999, 2016. The designer’s initials are below and to the right of the shield.
Second in the ten-coin series, is this 2017 Queen’s Beasts Griffin. Minted in high relief with highest purity, this coin features the highly detailed, majestic griffin. The beast’s claws are clutching a shield as its wings spread high to the sky, and its long tail, wrapped trailing behind. Inscriptions include, Griffin of Edward III, the weight, purity and year encircling the griffin at the rim.
