Masterwork

For the first time in its 1,100-year-long history, the original maker of UK coins, The Royal Mint, has produced a 10-kilo gold commemorative coin.

It is the latest ‘Masterwork’, a new series of larger, one-of-a-kind collector pieces made using a combination of traditional skills and innovative technology.

The Queen's Beasts

Capturing all ten beasts side by side in a single design, the coin marks the conclusion of the Queen’s Beasts commemorative coin collection. This series of coins takes its inspiration from the ten stone statues which lined Her Majesty’s route to Westminster Abbey at her Coronation in 1953.
