2017 2 oz British Silver Queen’s Beast Coin – The Griffin

The Queen’s Beasts series features the 10 heraldic beasts that stood guard during the Queen’s coronation ceremony in 1953. These 6-foot tall sculptures represented the royal ancestry that was brought together when her Majesty was crowned. Stone replicas of these beasts now stand watch over Kew Gardens in the UK.

The Griffin is a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. This powerful creature, combining the king of the beasts and the king of the birds, is often depicted as a guardian of treasure and valuables. The Griffin is representative of courage, strength, and vigilance.

On the obverse, you willl see the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II over a textured field. Inscriptions include the coin’s legal tender value of 5 pounds and “ELIZABETH II.” You will also notice the initials of the coin’s artist, Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark.

The reverse features the mighty Griffin with extended wings, holding a shield in its talon. Inscriptions include “GRIFFIN OF EDWARD III,” “2 OZ,” “FINE SILVER 999.9,” and “2017.”

The British Royal Mint has been producing coins for England and Great Britain for over 1,000 years, making it one of the world’s oldest mints. It is known for the unique Trial of Pyx, a process that enlists a jury of assayers to ensure the quality of minted coins.
