Why add this GEM BU 2017 Queen's Beast Unicorn of Scotland coin to your collection?

This spectacular release of The Royal Mint's Queen's Beasts series celebrates the Unicorn of Scotland. One of the ten heraldic sculptures guarding the Queen at her coronation in 1953, the unicorn's image was added to the Royal Arms by James I, who united the Scottish and English crowns in 1603. This 2017 dated Unicorn of Scotland coin is struck from a cupro-nickel alloy, with a diameter measuring 38.61 mm.

Beautifully Detailed Designs by Royal Mint Designer Jody Clark

The reverse features a glorious unicorn, its neck encircled by a crown with an attached chain, standing behind a shield ornamented with the image of the Lion of England. Inscriptions include "UNICORN OF SCOTLAND" and "2017."

The obverse features the elegantly crowned portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II facing right, surrounded by the inscription "ELIZABETH II, D.G. REG. FID. DEF., 5 POUNDS."
