Why purchase this perfectly graded 2021 Queen's Beasts Griffin of Edward III 1 Kilo Silver Proof coin?
The Royal Mint's Queen's Beasts series is a magnificent homage to the heritage of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, demonstrated by heraldic symbols introduced to the British monarchy through centuries of leadership. For the occasion of the Queen's coronation in 1953, the symbolism was realized into ten heraldic statues to guard the ceremony, each standing six feet tall. Imagery for the ten-coin Queen's Beasts series is based upon those heraldic statues, which are currently on display at the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec.
Exquisite Heraldic Design
Obverse: The right facing effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse, framed by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II" and "D.G. REG. F.D.," along with the coin's face value of "500 POUNDS."
Reverse: The reverse features a Griffin, a part eagle, part lion mythic creature, with its lion tail curling behind, clutching a shield decorated with the Round Tower of Windsor Castle, the royal crown and a pair of curved branches of oak. The image is surrounded by the inscriptions "2021" and "GRIFFIN OF EDWARD III." Both images are initialed "JC," crediting Royal Mint sculptor Jody Clark with their designs. Mr. Clark is the artisan behind each individual heraldic design in the Queen's Beasts ten-coin series.
