The Royal Mint has once again proven its impeccable dedication to producing British coinage that faithfully represents the nation’s rich heritage. Fourth in the immensely popular ten-coin Queen’s Beasts series, The Unicorn of Scotland was designed for the British Royal Mint by the highly respected engraver, Jody Clark. As with the three previous releases, the intricate detail captured on the image is truly awesome! This magnificent 2019 10 oz Silver Queen’s Beasts Unicorn contributes greatly to the centuries of British heritage represented in the 10 original painted-plaster statues of 1953.
Minted in high relief with highest purity and 10 oz weight, this silver bullion coin series has become a highly treasured favorite among collectors and precious metals investors world-wide. The coin’s obverse displays Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and the 10 pounds face value. Quite interestingly, the Queen’s portrait was also designed by Jody Clark and adopted into British coinage since 2016. The background pattern features The Royal Mint’s guilloché obverse design.
The boldness and strength possessed by this ancient beast have filled the pages of heraldic stories of old for countless centuries. The symbol of power and grace have come together in this beautifully detailed image of the Unicorn of Scotland. The massive, yet sleek muscle tone of the beast is displayed in his rearing and the high kicking of his front hooves. His mane handsomely falling in locks, as his tail, long and curved, is under him.
The single horn is prominent and brings full attention to his fierce, proud face. The shield displayed hearkens back to 1603, with the accession of James I. A heavy chain is around his neck, yet does not enchained him, but rather binds him in unity to the English shield. The design is encircled with the inscriptions, “UNICORN OF SCOTLAND . 10 oz FINE SILVER . 9999 . 2019.” The designer’s initials are below and to the left of the shield.Highlights 2019 10 oz Silver Queen’s Beasts Unicorn.

The Queen’s Beasts are ten heraldic statues depicting the genealogy of Queen Elizabeth II. The statues were created by the British sculptor James Woodford in 1953 for the Queen’s coronation, and temporarily set up in front of the western annex to Westminster Abbey, the coronation church of the British monarchy. Today, the almost 2 meter high painted plaster figures are on display in the Canadian Museum of History in Ottawa.Information Home About Us Payment Shipping Returns Feedback Contact Us Categories Silver Gold Platinum Specials Supplies Clad Coins Other Connect
