The Queen’s Beasts series is designed to celebrate the 10 heraldic beasts that stood guard at the Queen’s coronation ceremony in 1953. Representing the royal ancestry that was united when her Majesty was crowned, these 6-foot tall sculptures were made specifically for the coronation. Stone replicas of these statues can now be found in Kew Gardens in the UK.
The mythical Griffin is a creature that has the body of a lion and an eagle’s head and wings. As a powerful combination of the king of the beasts and the king of the birds, the griffin is often considered a guardian of treasure and valuables. This noble beast represents courage, strength, and vigilance.
The coin’s obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II atop a textured field. Inscriptions around the rim include the coin’s legal tender value and “ELIZABETH II.” Also on this side are the initials of the coin’s artist, Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark.
The mighty griffin in seen on the reverse with outstretched wings. It holds a shield in its talon. Inscriptions around the rim include “GRIFFIN OF EDWARD III,” “1 OZ,” “FINE GOLD 999.9,” and “2017.”
One of the world’s oldest mints, the British Royal Mint has been manufacturing coins for England and Great Britain for over 1,000 years. One of the mint’s famed traditions is the Trial of Pyx, a process in which a jury of assayers gather to ensure the quality of minted coins.
