Jody Clark became the youngest Royal Mint engraver to ever create a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II when he unveiled the latest design of the monarch for United Kingdom coinage. His 2015 design replaces that of Ian Rank-Broadley, which has been in use since 1998.
The British Queens Beast Coin program is a planned 10-design series that features new designs for each of the animals featured in the coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II. In total, the British Queens Beast coin series features a 1 oz gold coin, this 2016 1/4 oz British Gold Queens Beast Coin, and the Royal Mint’s first-ever 2 oz silver bullion coin.
Each 2016 oz Gold Lion coin available to you here today is considered a perfect specimen. Coins with a Mint State 70 grade from the NGC exhibit full, original mint luster and lack all detracting flaws of any kind on the surface areas of the coins.
The obverse of the British Gold Queens Beast Coin you’ll find Clark’s all-new portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Captured in right-profile relief, Her Majesty’s portrait is surrounded by engravings of her name, the year of issue, and the face value of the coin in Pound Sterling.
The reverse of the 2016 1/4 oz British Gold Queens Beast Coin includes the fearsome image of the Lion of England. It is depicted standing behind the Royal Coat of Arms, with one paw holding the shield and the other raised, poised to strike back at the nation’s enemies.
The Royal Mint was originally founded in the early 9th century as the London Mint. For more than one-thousand years it has coined official currency for the crown, and today produces the official Pound Sterling of the United Kingdom.
