All of the 2017 10 oz British Silver Queens Beast Coins in this listing are considered perfect specimens by the NGC. Coins with a Mint State 70 grade exhibit full, original mint luster and lack all forms of detracting flaws on the surface areas of the coin. Early Release coins are those which arrive for certification at the NGC, or an approved third-party depository, within the first 30 days of the release date the Royal Mint set for the coins.
The 2016 issue of these coins from the Royal Mint is an exciting occasion. First and foremost, artist Jody Clark has created an all-new right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for use on British and commonwealth coinage. Currently, the 1998 depiction from Ian Rank-Broadley is in wide circulation.
Clark is also the lead designer on a series of Queen’s Beast coins that debuted with the release of the 2016 2 oz British Silver Queen’s Beast Coin. The lion is the lead feature in the newly announced series, which aims to recreate the animals that served as backdrop imagery during the Queen’s coronation in 1952 when she ascended to the British throne. At just 33 years of age when he designed the new portrait of the Queen, Clark is the youngest man to do so for the Royal Mint.
Now the Royal Mint is expanding the Queens Beast Collection, re-releasing the Lion of England design on an exciting new 1 oz Platinum coin and these 10 oz British Silver Queens Beast Lion coins.
