Product Description

The 2018 Queen's Beast 10 oz Silver Bullion Coin - The Griffin is the 10 troy ounce version of the second design released of the 10-coin series and comes packaged in a mint-issued protective coin capsule. Following the initial success of the series, The Royal Mint has begun offering an official ten-ounce United Kingdom bullion coin bearing the heraldic beast design. This addition to The Royal Mint's bullion range takes its inspiration from hundreds of years of royal heraldry.

The background for this range comes from the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, where ten heraldic beasts stood guard, The Queen's Beasts, sculpted by James Woodford RA for the coronation ceremony. The coins each depict one of the The Queen's Beasts, reimagined by Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark. Jody also created the latest definitive coinage portrait of The Queen to appear on United Kingdom coins. His bold interpretations of the Lion of England is the first coin released of the series.

Obverse
The obverse features the 5th definitive coinage Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by the text "ELIZABETH II • D • G • REG • F • D • 10 POUNDS". DG REG FD is an abbreviation of the latin "Dei Gratia Regina Fidei Defensor" meaning; "Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith" and is a form of the Style of the British sovereign of Queen Elizabeth II common on coins of the Pound Sterling. The initials of the artist Jody Clark appear just below the portrait.

Reverse
The reverse features a stylized rendition of the Griffin of Edward III surrounded by the text "GRIFFIN OF EDWARD III • 10 oz FINE SILVER • 999.9 • 2018". The initials of the artist Jody Clark appear just below shield offset to the left.

What are The Queen's Beasts?
When Her Majesty The Queen was crowned on June 2nd, 1953, ten heraldic beast statues stood guard outside the coronation ceremony in Westminster Abbey. The Queen's Beasts, as they are known, are a series of statues that were commissioned by the British Ministry of Works and sculpted by James Woodford RA. Standing at six foot high and cast in plaster, the ten statues depict the genealogy of The Queen, with each of the heraldic beasts symbolizing the various strands of The Queen's royal ancestry;

  • the Lion of England
  • the Griffin of Edward III
  • the Red Dragon of Wales
  • the Falcon of the Plantagenets
  • the Black Bull of Clarence
  • the Yale of Beaufort
  • the White Lion of Mortimer
  • the White Greyhound of Richmond
  • the Unicorn of Scotland
  • the White Horse of Hanover

After the coronation ceremony, The Queen's Beasts were taken to Hampton Court Palace where they stood guard in the Great Hall. At the time, the palace was also home to the King's Beasts of Henry VIII, a series of statues that lined the bridge over the moat, from which James Woodford took inspiration for The Queen's Beasts statues. While The Queen's Beasts were relocated to Windsor Castle four years later, the King's Beasts statues remain at Hampton Court Palace today, still lining the bridge over the moat.

After a short stay at Windsor Castle The Queen's Beasts were taken into storage. Today they can be found at the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec, Canada. If you're not travelling to Canada any time soon, Portland stone replicas, which were also carved by the original sculptor James Woodford RA, watch over Kew Gardens in the United Kingdom.

The Griffin of Edward III
The griffin of Edward III Queen's Beast is an ancient mythical beast. It was considered a beneficent creature, signifying courage and strength combined with guardianship, vigilance, swiftness and keen vision. It was closely associated with Edward III who engraved it on his private seal. The shield shows the Round Tower of Windsor Castle (where Edward III was born) with the Royal Standard flying from the turret, enclosed by two branches of oak surmounted by the royal crown.
