The Queen’s Beasts series has long been one of the most popular coins that the historic British Royal Mint has to offer. The coin series offers a comprehensive and collectable look into one of the British Royal Family’s most cherished monuments. The Queen’s Beasts coins commemorate ten statues created by sculptor James Woodford. The ten statues were originally unveiled at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Each statue is a wild animal meant to symbolize one of the main supporters of England, as well as Queen Elizabeth II herself. The coin series is still relatively new, having been released initially in only 2016.
Today, we bring to you the 2021 2 Oz Silver Queen’s Beasts Completer Coin. The completer coin, as the name suggests, is meant to be the last coin a collector will collect from this historic series. The coin is minted using two Troy Ounces of .9999 pure silver. Its reverse depicts all ten of the heraldic Queen’s Beasts from the original series; they surround the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, as well as several relevant inscriptions. For fans of the history and genealogy of the revered Queen Elizabeth II of England, this coin is an opportunity to complete one of the most exciting and highly collectable coins ever to be produced by the English Empire.

The detail on this completer coin is truly immaculate. Struck into .9999 pure silver in a quantity of two troy ounces, onlookers can make out every detail of each of the ten Queen’s Beasts on its reverse. The obverse side is reminiscent of most coins coming out of the British Royal Mint. In the one-thousand years of the popular British Mint, the effigy of the Queen has been a common obverse fixture. Queen Elizbeth II may very well be the most popular design on any coin. Her face appears not just on British Coins, but also on coins from New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and countless smaller mints. In a way, her presence reminds coin collectors of the vast reach and influence of the British Empire, as well as the modern British state.
The reverse-side of the 2021 2 Oz Silver British Queen’s Beasts Coin is where its aesthetic really shines. Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy is centered, and she is surrounded on all sides by the Queen’s Beasts that symbolize her lineage and Royal support as the Queen of England. These are the very same Beasts that appear on the reverse sides of the other coins in this series, making the completer coin the ultimate final piece to one of the British Royal Mint’s most exciting collections.
