  • Description:

    The 2018 2 oz British Silver Queen's Beast Unicorn Coin is a majestic addition to the Royal Mint's celebrated Queen's Beasts series, which commemorates the heraldic statues that graced the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Each coin in the series features one of the ten iconic beasts, representing the various branches of the monarch's genealogy. The Unicorn of Scotland, showcased in this 2018 release, stands as a symbol of purity and strength, deeply rooted in Scottish heraldry and prominently associated with the Scottish royal arms since the 12th century.

    Designed by Jody Clark, the Unicorn coin captures the mystical creature in a dynamic and powerful posture, chained to a shield that bears the historic Scottish arms. This design not only highlights the unicorn's symbolic representation of purity and power but also its role as a guardian of the Scottish dynasty. The detail in the muscular build of the Unicorn and the ornate chain that binds it to the shield is meticulously crafted, reflecting the high artistic standards of the Royal Mint. The obverse of the coin bears the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, also designed by Clark, establishing a direct connection to the current monarchy and reinforcing the theme of heritage and continuity.

    This coin is struck from 2 troy ounces of .999 fine silver, ensuring its desirability among collectors and investors for its precious metal content as well as its numismatic value. Issued in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, the coin maintains a pristine finish with no wear from handling or circulation. This level of preservation is crucial for maintaining the aesthetic appeal and the intricate details of the design, which are central to its value as a collectible piece.

    The mintage of the 2018 2 oz British Silver Queen's Beast Unicorn Coin was strategically limited to ensure its rarity and enhance its appeal as a collector's item. While specific mintage numbers may not be immediately available, this limited production adds to the coin’s value in the secondary market. The limited edition nature of this release, combined with its significant cultural and historical symbolism, makes it highly sought after by those who appreciate the rich heritage of British royal insignia and the craftsmanship of the Royal Mint.

    In conclusion, the 2018 2 oz British Silver Queen's Beast Unicorn Coin is not just a piece of precious metal; it is a richly symbolic and beautifully crafted representation of Scottish and British heritage. Its detailed design, substantial weight in fine silver, and Brilliant Uncirculated condition make it a standout piece for both numismatists and investors. Collecting such coins offers a way to own a piece of the storied past, tied to the grandeur and tradition of the British monarchy, preserved in stunning silver for future generations to appreciate.
