In 2016, The Royal Mint introduced a new Gold and Silver series celebrating the British Monarchy and the centuries of fascinating heraldry that has been a part of their story. This 10-coin series will feature each of the 10 heraldic statues that stood watch at Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953, representing the different houses joining in Her Majesty’s royal ancestry.
This fifth release features the Black Bull of Clarence, linked to the Queen through Edward IV, as it is believed that his army bore the figure on their shields in his battle to become the first Yorkist King of England. Similar to other coins throughout the series, this design is the work of Jody Clark, acclaimed coin designer at The Royal Mint. The reverse of the coin showcases a muscular black bull rearing above a royal shield. The obverse features the standard British design of Queen Elizabeth II with a guilloché background.
“We are excited to offer the fifth release in this iconic series to our customers,” APMEX Director of Merchandising Ryan Boyles said. “The Royal Mint’s talented designers have taken timeless heraldic themes and created powerful yet elegant designs. Additionally, the high purity and range of sizes in both Gold and Silver coins means more opportunity for investors who trust and value The Royal Mint name.”
Similar to past Queen’s Beasts issues, this latest release is offered in a variety of sizes. Gold coins are available from 1/4 oz up to 1 kilo and all contain .9999 fine Gold. The Silver coins all contain .9999 fine Silver and can be found from 1 oz up to 1 kilo.
