It is hard to select a heraldic beast from the Queens Beast Series at the Royal Mint that stands out from the rest, but the Black Bull of Clarence is certainly unique from a historical standpoint.

During the 15th century England was wracked by the Wars of the Roses. The war marked infighting in the kingdom for control of the throne of England. On one side of this battle was the House of York and the descendants of Roger Mortimer, himself a descendant of the Duke of Clarence. On the other side of the battle was the House of Lancaster, ruled during the war by King Henry VI.
All 2019 10 oz British Silver Queens Beast Black Bull Coins come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and feature an individual protective capsule to house the coin. These coins are the largest bullion weight in the series and make for a distinctive silver bullion release.

On the reverse of 2019 British Silver Queens Beast Black Bull Coins is the Black Bull of Clarence. Used by King Edward IV and his brother Richard III, the Black Bull cuts a powerful figure as it stands behind the heraldic shield that depicts the King of Englands claim to the throne of England and France. The quartered shield has the three lions of England in two quadrants and the three golden lilies of France in the other two quadrants.
The obverse of 2019 10 oz British Silver Queens Beast Black Bull Coins features the latest effigy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
