The Next Protector of Queen Elizabeth II is Here!

. . . With a Little Help from Her Friends . . .

When you're about to be crowned as the Queen of England at the age of 27, it helps to have a bit of protection! That's why the British Ministry of Works commissioned sculptor James Woodford RA to create a series of 10 heraldic beasts, each symbolizing a different chapter of the Queen's genealogy, for Her Majesty's coronation ceremony on June 2, 1953. First sculpted in plaster, the Queen's Beasts have had several homes since their debut, now residing in the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec. However, Woodford also sculpted replicas of the beasts in Portland stone that now sit outside the Kew Gardens in London.

Introducing the Majestic Unicorn of Scotland!

Now, the Royal Mint is introducing the next design in the popular Queen's Beasts bullion coin series -- the Unicorn of Scotland! Accompanying the Lion of England on the Royal Arms since the creature was first added by James I of England, this graceful representation of Scotland has been reimagined for the twenty-first century by acclaimed designer Jody Clark. In addition, Clark designed the coin's obverse -- the latest definitive coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, used on all coins from the United Kingdom since 2015.

A Mythical Creature, a Living Legend, a Stunning Silver Coin!

Your 2018 Queen's Beast Unicorn of Scotland Bullion Coin comes minted in two ounces of 99.99% pure silver and is legal tender five pounds sterling. In addition, your coin will come certified flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) as well as First Releases by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
