The Queen’s Beasts have become one of the most revered landmarks of Great Britain.
Originally created for Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953, the Queen’s Beasts statues were meant to symbolize the unique lineage and familial support of the Queen. She has become the longest reigning monarch in this history of the British Monarchy, which is thousands of years old.
Her incredible reign is represented by many classic British symbols, including the historic Queen’s Beasts. The Queen’s Beasts Series commemorates these majestic statues. Since 2016, the British Royal Mint has produced gold coins that represent the statues, as well as the historical nobles they represent.
The 2021 Great Britain 1 Oz Gold Queen’s Beasts Completer Coin ultimately represents the culmination of this impressive collectable series. This is the final coin in the series, and it features images of every single one of the Queen’s Beasts, which surround Queen Elizabeth’s face. The intricate details of this coin make it easy for onlookers to identify each of the Beasts.
