The Queen's Beasts Series started last year and is now in full swing with two issues every year. The series is to commemorate the 10 heraldic Queen's Beasts statues present at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and represent the royal line of ancestry. The coins come in many different versions but for the purpose of this post we will only be talking about the two oz silver bullion version as in my opinion it is the most affordable version to buy. The coins as said before comes in 2oz silver bullion versions meaning you will only find gem unc or MS coins slabbed no proofs. You can pick up one of the three already released issues for around $60 in gem unc or $70 in MS-69 which is a bargain in my book when a 1oz Panda can cost as much as $50 in the same grade. The list below shows the three coins currently released.2016 lion2017 Griffin was supposed to come out dated 20162017 Dragon2017 White Greyhound is supposed to come out later this year
When I attend a major show, I always check out the exhibits. I feel the best exhibits show something totally unfamiliar to most collectors, or show something familiar in such a way that you think about it differently.
