Like most British sovereign coins, the obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fifth portrait of Her Majesty to be used on coinage during her historically long reign. The design, by Jody Clark, has recently been enhanced by a new guilloche design. The coin’s denomination is inscribed on this side.
The Griffin is pictured on the reverse with extended wings and a shield in its talon, representing the second design in this 10-part series. This mythical creature has the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. The beast is often depicted as a guardian of treasure and valuables. Like the obverse, the reverse is designed by Jody Clark as well. Inscriptions include the beast’s name, weight, purity, and year of issue.
The Queen’s Beasts series of bullion coins was inspired by the 10 heraldic beasts that stood guard during the Queen’s coronation ceremony in 1953. Symbolizing power and identity, these 6-foot tall statues once lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey. Today, stone replicas of the beasts now stand watch over Kew Gardens in the UK.
Single coins come in a protective plastic capsule. Multiples of 15 coins comes in a monster box with a new configuration from the mint.
