There’s a reason the British Royal Mint has won a reputation as one of the most significant bullion distributors in the history of the world. For over a thousand years, the British Royal Mint has used high quality bullion products to commemorate key moments in the extended history of Great Britain, as well as its Royal Families. The days of the British Empire are over, but the Royal Family still represents an unmatched national aesthetic. Bullion purchasers all over the world eagerly await releases from the British Royal Mint, which invariably include the likeness of Queen Elizabeth II. When it comes to symbolism for the British royal family, few series tap into beautiful British imagery as well as the Silver Queen’s Beasts series. This series features the “Queen’s Beasts,” which is based on a group of sculptures in the Royal Palace meant to symbolize the lineage of the Queen. Each Queen’s Beast is a different animal. The latest edition in the regular Queen’s Beast series is the 2021 Greyhound of Richmond, but the British Royal Mint has continued to release the “bullion series.” The latest release in the bullion series is the 2021 British 10 Oz Silver Queen’s Beasts White Horse Coin.
- 9th release in the 10 Oz Silver Beast’s Silver Series.
- Biggest available Silver Series coin!
- Obverse Depiction: Queen Elizabeth II as depicted by Jody Clark.
- Reverse Depiction: The White Horse of Hanover, who represents King George I.
This coin is struck with ten ounces of .9999 pure silver, making it the largest available silver coin in the silver bullion series. As always, the piece is distributed directly from the Royal British Mint in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition in their original protective capsules. The first of the Queen’s Beasts were released in 2016, and the series has quickly become a popular way for collectors to expand their portfolio while celebrating the complex and exciting history of the Royal Family. Each coin in this collection celebrates a different one of the Queen’s Beasts, which were originally constructed by artist James Woodford to represent the different families associated with Queen Elizabeth’s lineage. The White Horse represents the “Lion of Hanover,” a mighty white horse who has classically represented George of Hanover, who is a descendent of King Charles I’s sister. This coin’s design is most appealing to consumers who have a developed understanding of British history, particularly as it pertains to the British Royal Family. Collecting all of the coins in this silver bullion series provides onlookers with a nuanced understanding of Queen Elizabeth II and her family connections to power. The obverse of the coin should come as no surprise for fans of British coinage. Here, Jody Clark has delivered a detailed depiction of Queen Elizabeth at age eighty-nine. She wears her pearl earring, as well as her crown. A repeating Royal Mint guilloche image decorates the background of this side of the coin. Fans of Britain’s extensive royal history should rejoice at the British Royal Mint’s decision to continue producing bullion editions of the famed Queen’s Beasts coins. This latest coin celebrates the Lion of Hanover, a mighty beast with symbolic implications for Queen Elizabeth and her lineage.
