Description

This coin is the first two ounce silver coin released by the Royal Mint, and the first in a series of 10 coins. It is exceptionally thick, as the diameter is the same as a one ounce coin.

Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953 was watched over by 10 heraldic beasts, re-imagined here as the first in a series of 10 designs.

The Queen's Beasts were created to represent the various branches of royal genealogy over the centuries. The lion first appeared around 1189 on the royal seal of King Richard I, later known as King Richard the Lionheart.

Unusually, both sides of this coin were executed by Jody Clark, an engraver at the Royal Mint. His effigy of the Queen is the only fifth to have graced British coins since 1953.

This unique silver coin is sure to become very collectible, order yours today!

In multiples of 10 this coin will ship in a mint tube.
