Each of the 2017 1 oz British Platinum Queens Beast Lion Coins in this listing is in near-perfect condition according to the NGC. Coins with an MS69 grade exhibit full, original mint luster, but also include a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are, namely, minuscule hairlines and contact marks found outside the primary focal areas.
An Early Release designation is applied to a coin that arrives for grading within a set timeframe. These coins must arrive at the NGC or an approved third-party depository, from the Royal Mint directly, within 30 days of the release date for the coins.
The Queen’s Beast Series debuted with the Lion of England design in 2016 on two gold coins and one silver coin, which was the first 2 oz bullion silver coin ever from the Royal Mint. Now, a new option is available in this collection with the release of a British Platinum Queen’s Beast Lion Coin.
On the obverse of each Queen’s Beast Lion coin you’ll find the newest right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty appears on this coin in a fifth-generation depiction and was created in 2015 by Jody Clark, the youngest engraver at the Royal Mint ever to create the effigy of the Queen.
The reverse of all 2017 1 oz British Platinum Queen’s Beast Lion Coins features the design of the Lion of England. As the first design release in the Queen’s Beast collection, the Lion of England is featured with the heraldic shield of the kingdom and the massive lion standing on hind legs ready to defend the kingdom.
