When Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II took the throne, she was presented with a collection of statues, each representing a beast or heraldic creature that was important to the members of the royal family who came before her. The 2017 British Queen’s Beast Unicorn 1 oz Silver Coin Proof is the 4th overall design in the Queens Beast Collection, and is the 2nd design release in the Proof Series of Queens beast coins. The coin was released in 2017 with a very limited mintage that will only serve to increase its collectability as time passes.
When the proof series was released, it featured the Lion of England. The bullion series released in the Queens Beast series follows a different release schedule. Each of the 2017 British Queen’s Beast Unicorn 1 oz Silver Coins will ship secured and protected in a presentation box from the Royal Mint.
These coins are highly collectible, not just due to their containing .999 pure silver, but because collectors enjoy adding royal related memorabilia to their collection. This series, with its beautifully designed features, was an instant hit when it was first released.
The obverse design of the 2017 British Queen’s Beast Unicorn 1 oz Silver Coin features the right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II created by Jody Clark. This portrait is the fifth-generation of Her Majesty having been used on British coinage.
The reverse design of the 2017 British Queen’s Beast Unicorn 1 oz Silver Coin features the majestic Unicorn of Scotland. The well-designed unicorn is depicted with a crown around its regal neck, and a long chain that flows away from the crown and wraps around the unicorns body. The unicorn is shown rearing up on its back legs, with its front hooves above the Royal Banner of Scotland.
The Unicorn of Scotland was first brought to life by William I, in the 12thcentury. It was initially intended to be one of the earliest forms of the Scottish coat of arms. The unicorn serves as an enduring symbol of strength and beauty for the Scottish people. When the thrones of Scotland and England were united by James I, the unicorn was selected as the icon that would join the Lion of England on the Royal Arms.
