The 2017 1 oz Gold Griffin is the second in the Queen's Beast coin series from the British Royal Mint. It's one of the most-eagerly anticipated bullion coin releases in the world as well as one of the most beautiful.
Designed by Jody Clark who is known for his definitive 'fifth portrait' of Queen Elizabeth II, the Gold Griffin is a truly impressive coin. The Queen's Beast collection of coins will feature 10 separate designs based on the heraldic symbols of the British Monarchy. For the coronation of HM the Queen in 1953, 10 gold plaster statues in the form of these legendary beasts stood guard. The Griffin of Edward III was one and it's this proud, mythic creature that adorns the reverse of this striking bullion coin.
The griffin, a creature of legend and a popular Royal heraldic feature, is said to have the body, back legs and tail of a lion and the head, wings and front talons of an eagle. Jody Clark has chosen to show the Griffin of Edward III in its full glory, head slightly raised to the right to capture its curved beak and with swishing lion's tail and fully extended wings.
