2020 2 oz Great Britain The Queen’s Beasts The White Horse of Hanover .9999 Silver Coin BU
In 1953, ten statues guarded the entrance to Westminster Abbey at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen. Known as The Queen’s Beasts, they were created to represent different strands of her ancestry. Today, these fascinating heraldic beasts have been reimagined for a new era, brought to life on our bullion coins.
The White Horse of Hanover is the ninth release in the collection. In 1714 Georg Ludwig, ruler of the German duchy of Hanover, succeeded to the throne of Great Britain as George I. He brought with him the heraldry of the region, including the ancient device of a white horse on a red background. The white horse is a beast with a long history, deeply rooted in Germany’s past and that of George I’s medieval ancestors.
