1 oz Royal British Mint Queens Beast Platinum Coin For Sale
The Heraldic Lion is perhaps one of the most important symbols of the British monarch. Adding to the popular Queen’s Beast series of coins from the Royal Mint, the 1 oz 2017 Queen’s Beast Lion Platinum Coin joins its gold and silver counterparts further expanding the acclaimed coin program. The Lion design is the very first design under the Queen’s Beast series – making it the first platinum coin to bear this image.
Each of these 2017 Queen’s Beast Lion Platinum Coins is struck using 0.9995 fine platinum, with a face value of £100 (GBP). Although the value of platinum outstrips the face value completely, it acts as a mark of backing of a sovereign government – inspiring trust amongst investors and collectors.
The obverses of these coins feature the familiar portrait of Queen Elizabeth II – as imprinted on all circulating coinage in the United Kingdom. This portrayal is the fifth depiction of Her Majesty – rendered by Jody Clark – the youngest engraver ever to create an effigy of the Queen.
On the other hand, the reverse of this coin highlights the Lion of England. The Lion stands with the Heraldic Shield of the Kingdom – ready to defend it against its enemies.
These 1 oz 2017 Queen’s Beast Platinum Coins are attractive purchases for collectors hoping to pull together a complete collection of the coins under the Queen’s Beast program. Moreover, because these pure platinum coins have lower premiums over the price of platinum, this makes them an excellent vehicle for diversification of investments into precious metals other than gold and silver – fortifying investment portfolios against market shocks.
