Behold the Black Bull of Clarence
Great Britain’s Royal Mint is celebrating the reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with a brand-new series featuring The Queen’s Beasts—ten creatures that stood guard outside her coronation ceremony on June 2, 1953. Each beast, both real and mythological, represented a part of her lineage. Constructed of wood and plaster, the beasts stood six feet tall and weighed more than 650 pounds each! Luckily, The Royal Mint has created a series of legal-tender coins that allow you to bring The Queen’s Beasts home without the use of a fork lift.

This latest release of the Queen’s Beasts series features the Black Bull of Clarence. Fierce and unyielding, this beast was a symbol of Edward IV, the first King of England descended from the House of York. Edward reigned from 1461 until 1470 and again from 1471 until 1483. Along with the bull comes the Royal Arms as born by Edward IV and his brother, Richard III.

It’s an impressive piece of numismatic art created by Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark, the artist also responsible for the fifth and most recent effigy of the Queen.
