This beautiful 2022 one ounce platinum coin is the final release in the very popular Queen’s Beast series from The Royal Mint. The 2022 1oz platinum Queen’s Beast Completer coin acts as the capstone to the series, celebrating all 10 beasts in one stunning design by The Royal Mint’s Jody Clark.
The Queen’s Beasts coins are based on the ten statues which stood guard outside Westminster Abbey for the Queen’s Coronation in 1953. They were originally sculpted by J.Woodford RA in 1953 and represent the various houses in the Queen’s ancestry. Over the past five years the Royal Mint have released 10 coins, each representing a heraldic device used by one of the houses in the Queen’s lineage. These ‘beasts’ are now brought together in one coin as a culmination of this classic series.
The design of the coin features HRH Queen Elizabeth at the centre surrounded by the 10 beasts. Clockwise from the top these are:
– The Lion of England
– The Red Dragon of Wales
– The Griffin of Edward III
– The Unicorn of Scotland
– The Black Bull of Clarence
– The Falcon of the Plantagenets
– The Yale of Beaufort
– The White Lion of Mortimer
– The White Horse of Hanover
– The White Greyhound of Richmond
The coin is (or 999.5 purity) and contains one ounce of platinum. Like all coins in this series both the obverse and reverse are designed by The Royal Mint’s Jody Clark.
This design proved to be one of the most popular released by The Royal Mint in many years, and the 2022 1oz platinum Completer coin is sure to be a hit with both investors and collectors alike.
