Each of the new designs in the Queen’s Beast Collection will debut with the standard 1 oz gold, 1/4 oz gold, and 2 oz silver coin options. There are two coin designs set for release each year through 2021, when the final design comes out on its own. The 2017 1 oz British Platinum Queens Beast Lion coin marks the first expansion of the program, a move which also includes a 10 oz silver coin.
All 2017 1 oz British Platinum Queens Beast Lion Coins in this listing are perfect specimens according to the NGC. Coins with a Mint State 70 grade feature full, original mint luster and bear no detracting flaws anywhere on the surface areas of the coin.
Additionally, these specimens are Early Release coins. 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.
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.
