£3,250.00
(VAT Exempt)
Gold proof 1oz First Releases Queen’s Beasts coin, graded PF 70 Ultra Cameo. This £100 coin features the final beast in The Royal Mint’s popular Queen’s Beasts series, inspired by the heraldic creatures that populate the coats of arms of Her Majesty’s royal and noble ancestors. The Griffin - known for guarding treasure - was an important symbol to medieval king Edward III whose birthplace, Windsor Castle, appears on the shield clutched in the beast’s talons. It’s a very lifelike engraving considering this is a mythical beast and is clearly inspired by real animals. Jody Clark is the artist behind this design as well as the obverse portrait of Her Majesty the Queen. This 31.21 gram coin is struck to proof standard in 999.9 gold and measures 32.69 millimetres from milled edge to milled edge. Graded PF 70 Ultra Cameo by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, this coin has a flawless strike and high contrast between mirrored fields and frosted devices. It has been given the additional ‘First Releases’ designation indicating that it was received by NGC within 30 days of release.
