Mythical figures, fabulous animals or mythical creatures are fictional figures from mythology or from ancient stories about animals that are said to have been seen in other lands. Often these figures have symbolic value from the ancient past.
Silver coins with mythical figures often have a beautiful and detailed design with an antique finish, making the coin look particularly beautiful. The obverse of the coin often depicts the mythical creature - for example, a dragon or a god. The reverse features various designs, mostly featuring Queen Elizabeth II. Well-known series featuring mythical figures are the Queens Beasts and the Tudor Beasts.
For the true collector, these coins are a special addition to their collection.
