About the series:
The Royal Mint’s established bullion portfolio continues to grow with a new series of gold and silver bullion coins. The coins will depict one of the The Queen’s Beasts, reimagined by a highly-praised new talent, Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark. Jody created the latest definitive coinage portrait of The Queen to appear on United Kingdom coins. His bold interpretations of the Lion of England was the first coin to be released, the Griffin of Edward III follows next.
The Griffin is a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. This powerful creature, combining the king of the beasts and the king of the birds, is often depicted as a guardian of treasure and valuables. The Griffin is representative of courage, strength, and vigilance.
The Royal Mint is a national treasure, making beautifully crafted coins and medals for countries all over the world. Over a thousand years of craftsmanship and artistry ensures every piece they strike is a long lasting piece of history.
