The Queens Beast series of silver coins was released by the Royal Mint of England. Each of the 10 mythical or heraldic beasts in the series represents a statue that was gifted to Her Majesty on the day she ascended to the throne. The beasts are all an important part of the history of the monarchy. The 2017 Proof British Queen’s Beast Unicorn 1 Kilo Silver Coin contains 1 kilogram, or 31.15 Troy oz) of .999 pure silver. It has a face value of 500, backed by the United Kingdom. The coins in this series have proven to be incredibly popular amongst collectors, with this larger coin being of more interest to the investor.
The Queens Beast series was debuted featuring the Lion of England and was soon followed by the Griffin of Edward III and the Red Dragon of Wales. The 2017 Proof British Queen’s Beast Unicorn 1 Kilo Silver Coin is the fourth design in the series. There is a very limited number of these coins available, with just 225 minted, and just 100 released for individual purchase.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne in 1953, after the untimely death of her father in 1952. She holds the record as being the longest-reigning monarch in the history of the English crown. She is featured on coinage in Britain and across the commonwealth nations.
The obverse design of the 2017 British Queen’s Beast Unicorn 1 Kilo Silver Coin features the 2015 fifth-generation portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This design is the fifth image Her Majesty to be struck on British coinage.
The reverse design of the 2017 British Queen’s Beast Unicorn 1 Kilo Silver Coin features the beautiful Unicorn of Scotland. This mythical and majestic beast was selected by William I, in the 12th century, when he was designing the Scottish coat of arms. The design was later integrated when James I united the English and Scottish thrones.
