Why add this flawless 2021 Griffin of Edward III 10 oz. Silver Proof coin from the Queen's Beasts series to your collection?
The Royal Mint's ten-coin Queen's Beasts series culminates with this final proof release of the series celebrating the Griffin of Edward III. The series is a tribute to the ten heraldic statues representing the Queen's ancestry, which stood guard during her coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey in 1953. A fantastic mythical creature which blends the strength of a lion with the keen sight of an eagle, the Griffin was introduced to British heraldry in the 14th century by King Edward III.
Exceptionally Detailed Designs by The Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark
Obverse: The obverse features a beautifully sculpted right facing portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "D.G. REG. F.D." and "10 POUNDS."
Reverse: The reverse depicts a magnificently rendered Griffin supporting a shield ornamented with the Round Tower of Windsor Castle. The castle is the birthplace Edward III and the location he founded the chivalric Most Noble Order of the Garter in 1348. Inscriptions include "2021" and "GRIFFIN OF EDWARD III." Jody Clark joined The Royal Mint as a sculptor/engraver in 2012, and in 2016 became the first Mint employee to craft a monarch coinage portrait in more than 100 years. Obverse and reverse of the coin bear the initials "JC," identifying Mr. Clark as their designer.
