The Queens Beast Series of gold and silver coins from the Royal Mint celebrates the 10 statues that appeared on the 1953 official coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II. Inside Westminster Abbey on that day, 10 statues were featured that bore importance to the heraldry of the United Kingdom.
Included in the array of statues was the Unicorn of Scotland. A mythical beast that many believed had the powers of healing, this horned horse was chosen by William I (William the Lion) in the Scottish coat of arms starting in the 12th century. William I reigned as King of the Scots from 1165 to 1214, holding the second-longest reign in Scottish history behind James VI.
On the reverse of the 2018 2 oz British Queens Beast Unicorn Silver Coin is the image of the Unicorn of Scotland. This design depicts the unicorn standing on its rear legs with its front hooves dangling over the royal badge of England, which includes an image of the Lion of England upon its surface.
The obverse of all coins in the British Queens Beast Collection features the latest effigy of Queen Elizabeth II during her long reign. Britains longest reigning monarch ever, and the current longest reigning monarch alive in the world, Queen Elizabeth II is captured in right-profile relief. This design was created in 2015 by Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark.
Each 2018 2 oz British Queens Beast Unicorn Silver Coin is available to you in BU condition. Coins in this condition have no signs of wear and tear, though minor flaws are a possible result of the striking process. These flaws are limited to breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks.
