A 2 oz. silver coin minted in 2020 of the White Horse of Hanover, from the Queen's Beasts series of the Royal Mint.

The Queen's Beasts series is one of the most significant and historic series minted by the Royal Mint in recent decades. It began issuance in 2016, depicting the mythological animals that, in the form of heraldic statues, decorated Queen Elizabeth II's inauguration ceremony in 1953.

As in all the coins in the series, there are two distinct parts to the coin's cross: the outer part, delimited by a stripe that surrounds the coin and where the coin's characteristics are presented; and the centre space, which is occupied entirely by the design of the animal.

The horse is spectacular, and is depicted neighing and standing on its hands, that is, with its two front legs raised, guarding the coat of arms of the House of Hanover. The level of detail of his musculature is superb, as is that of his mane, from which all the hairs can be distinguished.

Below the coat of arms we find the initials JC, which belong to Jody Clark, who was responsible for the spectacular design of the coin, both the face and the cross.

The edge of the coin has a simple striated edge, with several lines running horizontally across it in a regular pattern, the fineness of which is quite remarkable. On the face is the usual face of Queen Elizabeth II, with a background of smaller dots than those on the cross, which occupy the entire space of the coin.

The Hanoverian White Horse was the eighth coin to be released in a series that has been a real success in the Anglo-Saxon countries, where its history and symbolism is particularly fascinating for its inhabitants. If you are missing any of the issues, do not hesitate to contact us.

It is made of silver with a purity of 999.9/1000, it is 2 ounces weighing 62.208 grams, with a face value of 5 pounds and its diameter is 38.61 millimetres.
