Each of the 2017 1 oz British Platinum Queen’s Beast Lion Coins in this listing are available in BU condition. Coins in this condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the coining process.
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.
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.
