The first series of the Queen'sBeasts of the Royal Mint starts a new chapter in the history of the tradition-steeped British mint. The high relief minting and the very detailed motive turn this coin into an absolute highlight of every collection. And this is only the start of the series comprising a total of eleven coins. Originally, a series of eleven statues were called the Queen's Beasts, which were created for Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953. Since then the beasts have adorned pieces of crockery, cutlery and postage stamps, before they were picked out by the Royal Mint.
