Why purchase this Queen's Beasts series 2021 Griffin of Edward III 1 oz. Silver Proof coin?
The Royal Mint's Queen's Beasts series is a celebration of the Queen's lineage and the importance of heraldic symbolism to the British monarchy. Each release of the ten-coin series is based upon one of the ten heraldic statues created to metaphorically guard the Queen during her coronation in 1953. This final, long anticipated proof release of Queen's Beasts series features the Griffin of Edward III, reviving the design issued only in bullion format in 2017.
Stunning Interpretation of the Mythic Beast
Obverse: Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse, posed facing right, with the Royal Diamond Diadem upon her head. Inscribed "ELIZABETH II," "D.G. REG. F.D." and "2 POUNDS."
Reverse: An exquisitely detailed Griffin, with the forepart of an eagle and the hind of a lion, is featured on the reverse. The creature supports a shield ornamented with the distinctive Round Tower of Windsor Castle with the Royal Standard and crown above, flanked by two branches of oak. The image border is inscribed with "GRIFFIN OF EDWARD III" and "2021." The obverse and reverse imagery, as well as the nine previously released heraldic designs of the Queen's Beasts series, are the work of artist Jody Clark, a sculptor/engraver for The Royal Mint since 2012.
