Product details

The 2 oz silver British Griffin coin is from the famous Queen’s Beasts series by the UK’s Royal Mint. The obverse side depicts Jody Clark’s portrait of Elizabeth II, a side profile of the Queen in her later years engraved on a textured background. 

The reverse side shows the griffin with the House of Windsor family shield clutched in its claws set against a chainmail background. The griffin, a mythical chimera of a lion and an eagle, is the heraldic symbol of Edward VIII of the House of Windsor.

The Queen’s Beasts series comprises ten coins in total, with the silver British griffin being the second of the lot. All ten coins are based on the beasts found in symbols of heraldry, myth, and legend, and all of them have had a place in the Queen’s reign from coronation to the Sapphire Jubilee (the 65th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign).

It’s no wonder that the Royal Mint felt it important to pay homage to the history and heritage of the Queen, as the mint itself was formed over 1,100 years ago in 886. It is the second-oldest mint in the world, just 22 years younger than the Monnaie de Paris in France. These coins are struck in two troy ounces of 0.9999 fine silver, an exceptional quality standard. These coins have a nominal face value of £5.

Coin Features

  • Two troy ounces of 99.99% pure silver
  • Issued by the second-oldest mint in the world with over a millennium of history
  • Culturally significant symbols serve to memorialize different aspects of the British monarchy
  • Stunning design of a heraldic beast  on the reverse makes for an excellent conversation starter

*We pack individual coins in plastic sleeves for protection before shipping. If you order 10+ of the same coin, we’ll secure them in protective tubes before shipping.
