Why does this flawless 2021 Queen's Beasts Griffin of Edward III 1 oz. Gold proof coin belong in your collection?

The Royal Mint's popular Queen's Beasts series concludes with this long-awaited tenth proof release honoring the Griffin of Edward III. The Griffin, a fantastical creature of myth with the forepart of an eagle and the hind of a lion, was introduced as an emblem of British heraldry by King Edward III in the 14th century. As one of the ten heraldic beasts that guarded Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II during her coronation ceremony in 1953, the Griffin represents the benevolence, courage, strength and vigilance of the monarchy.

  • This 2021 Griffin of Edward III coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine gold.
  • The coin measures 32.69 mm in diameter, featuring a gorgeous proof finish.
  • The coin is the final release of the ten-coin Queen's Beasts series.
  • The perfectly graded coin is authenticated as One of the First 35 Struck.
  • The coin includes the original Royal Mint Authenticity Certificate.
  • Mintage is limited to just 545 pieces.

Magnificently Detailed Designs

Obverse: A crowned, right facing portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse, encircled by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "D.G. REG. F.D." and "100 POUNDS."

Reverse: An exquisitely rendered Griffin with its wings outstretched in centered on the reverse. The stunning creature proudly grasps a shield bearing an image of the Round Tower of Windsor Castle flying the Royal Standard beneath a royal crown, flanked by flourishing branches of oak. Inscribed "GRIFFIN OF EDWARD III" and "2021." The inscription "JC" appears on the obverse and reverse, crediting the imagery to Royal Mint coin designer Jody Clark. Mr. Clark is notably the first Royal Mint engraver to create a definitive monarch coinage portrait in over a century.
