When Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in 1953, the entrance to Westminster Abbey was lined with ten statues who “guarded” the way. These fantastical creatures – The Queen’s Beasts – were a line up of heraldic, and in some cases mythic animals, who symbolized the centuries of heritage that the young queen had inherited.

The Queen’s Beasts Collection of coins from The Royal Mint are inspired by these ancestral beasts of that have watched over the Queen throughout her reign, from coronation to Sapphire Jubilee.

The Falcon symbol descended from the reign of Plantagenet King Edward III who chose the symbol to embody his love of hawking. The white Falcon statue at The Queen’s coronation in the 20th century held a shield with a badge depicting a second white falcon within an open golden ‘fetterlock’ or padlock. The fetterlock and the falcon were popular emblems in the Houses of both York and Lancaster, as they had descended from Edward III’s younger sons John of Gaunt and Edmund of Langley. The open fetterlock can only be used by a noble with a claim to the throne.

The Falcon is said to be the favorite badge of Queen Elizabeth I.

DEALERS: Call the trading room to order 800.375.4653 or login to FizTrade.com.

The platinum version features the same depiction of “Britannia” that is on the silver and gold versions.

“Britannia” first appeared on the Roman Emperor Hadrian’s coins, circa AD 119. The image was then brought back for the coinage of Charles II in 1672. This spirit of the British Isles has evolved over time. She has been shown with olive branch and owl for peace and wisdom, and with Corinthian helmet and shield for strength and courage, while her trident amid waves or rocky shores salutes Britain’s naval strength.

In 1987, sculptor Philip Nathan created the design that is struck now. He shows the iconic figure of Britannia standing windswept in a Grecian gown, waves at her feet; trident, shield and olive branch in hand. His elegant and instantly recognizable Britannia still endures nearly 30 years later.

A new element of the Britannia coins is a guilloche background design on the obverse side.

First minted in 1997, the American Platinum Eagle is the first and only official platinum coin from the U.S Mint.

From 1997 to 2008, the Bullion Platinum Eagles were issued in 1oz, .5oz, .25oz, and .1oz denominations. The Platinum Eagle was not struck from 2009 to 2013. In 2015, the bullion was also not minted due to an insufficient quantity of blanks.

Starting in 2014, the Mint ceased striking the fractional coins, leaving the one ounce denomination.

The Director of the United States Mint Philip N. Diehl, American Numismatic Association President David L. Ganz, and Platinum Guild International Executive Director Jacques Luben began the legislative process that lead to the creation of the Platinum Eagle in 1995. The first fine platinum coins were finally released by the United States Mint two years later. The Platinum Eagle is authorized by the United States Congress,  and is backed by the United States Mint for weight, content, and purity.

While the Platinum Bullion has kept the same motifs on the obverse and reverse each year since its inception, the Proof offered new designs every year on the reverse from 1997 to today, with the exception of its 20th anniversary mintage which featured the original soaring eagle. The obverse of the proof coins showed the same closeup of the Statue of Liberty from 1997 to 2017. In 2018, the proofs began a new series that changes the obverse each year that illustrates one word from the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence, while the reverse of each year shows the same eagle.

Proof versions of the coins are intended for coin collectors and sold directly to the public whereas the bullion versions are sold only to the Mint’s authorized buyers.
