CoinSilver Ten Ounces 2018 Black Bull of Clarence, Proof

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues bullion coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The ten ounce (10 oz) silver coins are denominated as ten pounds (£10).

The coins are legal tender but are not intended for circulation. They are targeted at bullion investors or collectors who appreciate the special editions as pieces of art. The coins are typically "one-year" types usually issued in parallel with smaller denominations with the same reverse designs.

This coin type is the fourth from a series of ten coin designs known as the Queen's Beasts.

The Queen's Beasts are British coins issued by the Royal Mint in platinum, gold, and silver since 2016. Each of the coins in the series features a stylised version of one of the heraldic Queen's Beasts statues present at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II representing her royal line of ancestry. It was announced that engraver Jody Clark will design the entire series; he is best known for also designing the Queen's Fifth definitive portrait, which is on the obverse of the coins - so he is in the rare position of having designed both sides.

The Queen's Beasts heraldic statues representing the genealogy of Queen Elizabeth II stood in front of the temporary western annexe to Westminster Abbey for the Queen's coronation in 1953. Each of The Queen's Beasts consists of an heraldic beast supporting a shield bearing a badge or arms of a family associated with the ancestry of Queen Elizabeth II. They were commissioned by the British Ministry of Works from sculptor James Woodford. The statues were uncoloured except for their shields at the coronation. They are now on display in the Canadian Museum of History. There are other statues of the Queen's Beasts, sometimes referred to as the King's Beasts, at Hampton Court Palace and Kew Gardens in London, and on the roof of St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

The Black Bull of Clarence descended to the Queen through King Edward IV. The shield shows the Royal Arms as they were borne by Edward IV and his brother King Richard III as well as all the Sovereigns of the Houses of Lancaster and Tudor.

The Black Bull of Clarence ten ounces silver proof coin was issued in a presentation box, Royal Mint Product Code: UK18QBST, issue price: £795.00. There is also a different 10oz bullion coin.
