The Queens Beast Series pays tribute to the mythical and heraldic beasts that play a role in the history of the Royal Family going back for centuries. The Royal Arms of England is depicted as being held up by two heraldic beasts. The Lion of England is reflective of the colorful and far-reaching history of the English Crown. The Unicorn of Scotland pays tribute to the union of the two crowns in the 18thcentury. The 2018 British Queen’s Beast Unicorn 2 oz Silver Coin features the Unicorn of Scotland. The coin contains 2 Troy oz of .9999 pure silver and there are just a few certified coins available.
Your 2018 British Queen’s Beast Unicorn 2 oz Silver Coin has been certified by the NGC as a near-perfect specimen. With a Mint State 69, this coin has its original mint luster and a maximum of two minor flaws detracting from its perfect state. The only flaws that are acceptable at this grade level include hairlines or minuscule contact marks.
The Unicorn was adopted as a heraldic animal centuries ago in Scotland. It is often thought that the unicorn itself came into being as a result of the misidentification of other animals in the wild, including the rhinoceros. The Unicorn of Scotland came to the British arms when James VI of Scotland ascended to the throne in the 17th century and became James I of England.
The obverse design of the 2018 British Queen’s Beast Unicorn 2 oz Silver Coin features the fifth-generation portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Queen Elizabeth is the longest-reigning monarch in Englands history. This portrait was created in 2015, depicting Her Majesty at 89.
The reverse of the 2018 British Queen’s Beast Unicorn 2 oz Silver Coin features the image of the Unicorn of Scotland. The beast was used by James VI of Scotland and came to the Royal Arms when he took the throne of England. The unicorn is depicting supporting the shield of Scotland, which features a rampant lion. The shield has remained unchanged since the 13th-century when Alexander III reigned.
James VI united the crowns of Scotland and England after Queen Elizabeth I died without an heir to take the throne. This introduced the Unicorn of Scotland to the Royal Arms, and led to the creation of a design featuring the Lion of England and Unicorn of Scotland supporting the shield.
