Why order this £5 British 2018 2 oz Silver Queen's Beasts Unicorn of Scotland

This 2 oz Silver 2018 £5 British Unicorn of Scotland is part of the fourth issue in the Royal Mint's Queen's Beasts collection. The series will include ten coins in total, each one bearing the image of a creature that was represented in statue form at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Struck from .9999 fine silver, this piece is a great choice as a standalone coin or as the beginning or continuation of a Queen's Beasts collection.

Artistic Unicorn of Scotland design by Jody Clark

The Royal Mint enhanced Jody Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which is now standard on British coinage, with a new guilloche design. The monarch's effigy shows her wearing the same headpiece that she wore at her coronation, the Royal Diamond Diadem.

The reverse, which was also the work of Clark, features two symbols of Scotland. The larger one is the unicorn for which the coin is named, while the second is a lion rampant, which is featured on a shield that the unicorn balances.

GEM Brilliant Uncirculated First Day of Issue

This coin was struck sharply and has above average eye appeal according to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), which labeled it GEM Brilliant Uncirculated. NGC also indicated that this coin went through an exclusive submission process that enabled it to earn First Day of Issue certification.
