Roger Mortimer, better known as the Duke of Clarence, was the man responsible for providing a line to the throne of England for the House of York. His great-grandson, Edward III, used this connection to claim the throne as King of England with the help of the Earl of Warwick, a man known as the kingmaker in England.
The Black Bull of Clarence was a long a design chosen by the Duke of Clarence, and used by Edward III in his Royal Arms. The Queens Beast Series features the Black Bull as the fifth design in the collection, which is available in all coins in the range from silver and gold to platinum.
On the obverse of all 2018 British Gold Queens Beast Coins is the fifth-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Jody Clark, the Royal Mints youngest-ever engraver to complete a monarchs effigy, created this right-profile portrait of the Queen at age 89 in 2015 to replace the 1998 design from Ian Rank-Broadley.
The reverse of the 2018 1 oz British Gold Black Bull Coins bears the image of the Black Bull of Clarence. Standing tall of a version of the Royal Arms used by Edward III, this quadrant shield has the three gold lions of England adopted by Richard I in two quadrants and an addition from Edward III to support his claim to the French throne. Those other two quadrants bear the golden lilies of France.
