The Queen’s Beasts – Unicorn of Scotland
Wednesday, 19 July 2017 | Gareth
For centuries heraldry has represented power and royalty, and is closely interwoven with the story of Britain's kings and queens. This new collection explores The Queen's heritage and how her ancestry is represented by the fierce royal protectors that protected the entryway to her coronation. Now, more than six decades later on, in the year that Her Majesty marked her Sapphire Jubilee and as the House of Windsor commemorates its 100th anniversary, The Queen's Beasts have been reimagined for a new age of her reign.
Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark has commemorated Her Majesty's Scottish heritage with a design for the Unicorn of Scotland. Presented in a Royal Mint case, the coin comes with a booklet produced in association with Clive Cheesman, Richmond Herald at the College of Arms.
