Just released by the UK's Royal Mint - a commemorative coin featuring all the Queen's Beasts, shown below in a rather monstrous 10-kilo gold version. That's already sold, but smaller versions can be had. More details in this article from today's Guardian. I've always been very fond of the Queen's Beasts, a set of sculptures designed by James Woodford to stand outside Westminster Abbey at Elisabeth II's coronation in 1953. The originals are in Canada, but there are sets at Hampton Court and Kew - view of the Greyhound of York at Kew below.
