The Royal MintA gorgeous gold coin from the Royal Mint

 The Queen's Beasts were a series of plaster models of 10 heraldic beasts, specially made for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1952. Today, the originals can be found at the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec, but you can own your own versions with the Queen's Beasts coin series from The Royal Mint. 

The Design
Created by Royal Mint designer Jody Clark, this beautiful gold 999.9 coin’s obverse features The Griffin of Edward III. Rendered in extraordinary detail, the griffin majestically spreads its wings and rears up over a shield, on which the Round Tower of Windsor Castle can be seen.

The Griffin
An ancient and mythical creature, the Griffin historically symbolised vigilance, guardianship, swiftness and vision. Its association with royalty began with Edward III, whose private seal prominently featured the griffin.
