What are The Queen’s Beast Silver Bullion Coins?
The Queen’s Beast Silver Bullion coins take their inspiration from the ten heraldic plaster statutes, each standing six feet tall, that were present at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II at Westminster Abbey in 1953. Each beast represents the coat of arms or badge of the families associated with the genealogy of Queen Elizabeth II. The statutes were created by sculptor James Woodford who was commissioned to produce them by the British Ministry of Works.
After the coronation, the Queen’s Beast statutes remained at Westminster Abbey. In 1957, they were moved to Hampton Court Palace outside London and in 1959 were shipped to the most senior British Commonwealth Nation, Canada, where they are on display Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, in the province of Quebec. London’s Kew Gardens also has stone replicas of the Queen’s Beasts statutes carved by James Woodford.
The U.K. Mint launched a series of the Queen’s Beasts coins in 2016 with the intention of producing a coin depicting each of the ten Queen’s beasts. The Queen’s Beast Silver Bullion Coins are unique, not only in their design, but in that they are the first to be minted by the Royal Mint in a two ounce size.
The Queen’s Beast silver coins are .9999 fine silver and are US IRA approved.
