Why make this 5 oz. Silver Proof 2021 Queen's Beasts Griffin of Edward III coin a part of your collection?
The Royal Mint launched the Queen's Beasts series in 2016. Inspiration for the theme of the series, and their commemorative designs, is based upon the ten heraldic statues created by British sculptor James Woodford to symbolically guard the Queen's coronation in 1953. This 2021 dated coin celebrates the Griffin of Edward III, a half eagle, half lion, mythical creature signifying the monarchy's strength and courage.
Gorgeously Detailed Renditions
