New Coin Releases from the Royal Mint
New Coin Releases in Popular Series
There are two new coin releases from the Royal Mint. These bring us the first 2019 Royal Mint coins. The total count of new coins is twelve, ten of which are proof. The other two are brilliant uncirculated coins. Proof coins in gold and in silver are the focus of these new releases. And, the quality of Royal Mint coinage is always as expected. If these are an indication, 2019 should be an exciting year in British numismatics.
The New Coin Releases for The Queen’s Beasts
The Falcon of the Plantagenets
The Queen’s Beast series appears to be a good endeavor by the Royal Mint. These coins are coming out at a pace of two per year. The current release is the Falcon of the Plantagenets.
The Falcon of the Plantagenets is the fifth coin in the series. This coin follows the popular Lion of England, the Unicorn of Scotland, the Red Dragon of Wales, and the Black Bull of Clarence coins. Well, that is for the proof coins. The bullion coins also include the release of the Griffin. It is not clear when or how the Griffin will be placed in the proof releases.
The Falcon of the Plantagenets is now available in three silver proof coins, the one-ounce, the five-ounce, and the one-kilogram coins. In addition, there are gold one-ounce and five-ounce proof coins available. Finally, there is a brilliant uncirculated coin that comes in a fold-out wallet.
It will be interesting to see which coin comes out next in this series. There are ten Queen’s Beasts in total.
