Description

One of the statues was the Unicorn of Scotland – a mythical beast that many believed had the powers of healing, this horned horse was chosen by William I (William the Lion) in the Scottish coat of arms starting in the 12th century.

The reverse design showcases the Unicorn of Scotland, standing on its rear legs with its front hooves dangling over the royal badge of England, which includes an image of the Lion of England.

The obverse design features the latest effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, the same portrait as seen on all coins in the British Queen’s Beast Collection. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is captured in right-profile relief, this artwork created in 2015 by Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark
