The Queen's Beasts coins are based on the ten statues which stood guard outside Westminster Abbey for the Queen's Coronation in 1953. They were originally sculpted by J.Woodford RA in 1953 and represent the various houses in the Queen's ancestry. Over the past five years the Royal Mint have released 10 coins, each representing a heraldic device used by one of the houses in the Queen's lineage. These 'beasts' are now brought together in one coin as a culmination of this classic series. 

The design of the coin features HRH Queen Elizabeth at the centre surrounded by the 10 beasts. Clockwise from the top these are:
- The Lion of England
- The Red Dragon of Wales
- The Griffin of Edward III
- The Unicorn of Scotland
- The Black Bull of Clarence
- The Falcon of the Plantagenets
- The Yale of Beaufort
- The White Lion of Mortimer
- The White Horse of Hanover
- The White Greyhound of Richmond

The coin is 24-carat (or 999.9 purity) and contains one ounce of gold. Just like other British currency, this coin is exempt from Capital Gains Tax.
