King Edward III ruled as King of England from 1327 until his death in 1377. Ruling for just over 50 years, he enjoyed the second-longest reign in medieval Britain. His time in power saw Englands military might grow as the kingdom became a power in Europe, but also saw the ravages of the Black Death sweep across Europe and England.
On the obverse of the 2018 10 oz British Silver Queens Beast Griffin Coin is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is now the longest-reigning British monarch at more than 65 years and features on these coins in a fifth-generation design. This right-profile portrait was created in 2015 by Jody Clark when the Queen was 89 years old.
The reverse of the 2018 10 oz British Silver Queens Beast Griffin Coin features the heraldic beast of King Edward III. Edward was a falconer by hobby and chose the mythical Griffin as his symbol, pairing it with the tower from Windsor Castle in which he was born in 1312 as part of his royal arms.
The Royal Mint is the production facility for all Queens Beast silver bullion coins. The Royal Mint traces its origins to the London Mint established in the 8th century. By the 13th century, the Royal Mint had established itself as the sole sovereign mint for the Kingdom of England.
