The introduction of the Queens Beast collection from the Royal Mint in 2016 marked not only the debut of a new 10-coin series, but also a Royal Mint first. The series contains three coins with each release, and the silver version is the first-ever 2 oz silver bullion coin from the Royal Mint.

The Queens Beast collection of silver and gold coins from the Royal Mint is slated to feature a total of 10 designs. Each new release represents one of the ten beasts carved into wooden statues that was present at Westminster Abbey during the 1953 coronation ceremony for Queen Elizabeth II.
Each of the 2017 2 oz British Silver Queens Beast Dragon Coins in this listing are near-perfect according to the NGC. Coins with a Mint State 69 grade feature full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. In this case, flaws are limited to miniscule hairlines or contact marks found outside the primary focal areas of the coins surface.
In order to qualify for the ER, or Early Release, designation coins must arrive at the NGC within a set timeframe. The NGC must receive the coins for grading from the Royal Mint within the first 30 days of the issue date set by the mint.
On the obverse of the British Queens Beast Griffin Silver Coin is the latest right-profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys image appears on the obverse of all British coinage, and this 2015 creation from Jody Clark is the latest enhancement of the Queens portrait.
The reverse of all 2017 2 oz British Silver Queens Beast Dragon Coins includes the image of the Red Dragon of Wales. The dragon itself was originally used by Owen Tudor, grandfather of Henry VII, as a badge symbol, and the Red Dragon of Wales includes the coat of arms used by the last native Prince of Wales, Llywelyn ap Gruffudd.
