The Queen’s Beasts was inspired by a series of statues displayed at Her Majesty the Queen’s 1953 Coronation. They took the form of the real and mythological creatures that appear on either side of the Coats of Arms of British royal and noble houses. A runaway success for The Royal Mint, their beastly coin series included ten designs, plus a ‘completer’, released between 2016 and 2021. The Griffin of Edward III was the penultimate proof coin in the series. With the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle, the griffin was said to be both powerful and intelligent, known for guarding treasure: a fitting subject for a coin. The Griffin of Edward III coin shows the badge of the House of Windsor, clutched in the beast's talons. It depicts the Round Tower of Windsor Castle – the birthplace of Edward III who used the griffin on his private seal. Like all coins in the Queen's Beasts series, the Griffin is the work of Jody Clark. He’s also responsible for the portrait of Elizabeth II that appears on the obverse. This one ounce gold proof edition was one of just 500 issued by The Royal Mint. This example has been graded by NGC as PF 70 Ultra Cameo. It’s a great strike with deeply mirrored surfaces and frosted fields: the best way to enjoy this design.
