The Queen’s 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.
Releases in the Queen’s Beast collection to date including the Lion of England in the first release, and the Griffin of Edward III. Now, for the third release in the coveted collection you’ll find the Red Dragon of Wales on the 2017 2 oz British Silver Queen’s Beast Dragon coin. All silver coins in the Queen’s Beast collection represent the first-ever 2 oz silver bullion coins from the Royal Mint.
These 2017 2 oz British Dragon Coins are available in BU condition. Coins in this condition have no signs of wear and tear, but you are bound to notice minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the striking of blanks at the mint facility.
On the obverse of the British Queen’s Beast Griffin Silver Coin is the latest right-profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s image appears on the obverse of all British coinage, and this 2015 creation from Jody Clark is the latest enhancement of the Queen’s portrait.
The reverse of all 2017 2 oz British Silver Queen’s 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.
