The Royal Mint has now released the second coin in the coveted Queens Beast collection. Each new release features a different design representative of one of the 10 beasts featured in statue form at the coronation ceremony for Queen Elizabeth II. Jody Clark, the man behind the all-new effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, is responsible for the creation of the early Queens Beast collection designs.
In the first release, the Lion of England was featured. Now, for the second release the Royal Mint introduces the mythical Griffin. With the head, wings, and front paws of an eagle, and the body of a lion, this was said to be the most powerful animal in the world. That power comes from the lions status as king of the beasts, and the eagles status as king of the birds.
On the obverse of the 2017 oz British Gold Queens Beast Griffin Coin is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed in 2015 by Jody Clark, this is the fifth-generation depiction of the Queen used since 1952.
The reverse of all 2017 oz British Gold Queens Beast Griffin Coins includes the design of a griffin standing with its front talons perched atop the seal of Edward III and its wings spread wide above its head. This side includes the engravings of Griffin of Edward III and 1 oz Fine Gold 9999 2017. Jody Clarks initials of JC are also engraved on this face.
All British Gold Griffin Coins listed here are in Mint State 69 condition according to the NGC. These coins are considered near-perfect specimens, with full, original mint luster. However, each also possesses a maximum of two minor detracting flaws, which are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
