The newest addition to The Queen’s Beasts Collection celebrates the majestic Bull of Clarence and its association with the Royal Family and the county of Yorkshire. The Black Bull of Clarence is synonymous with power and strength and is thought to have featured on the shields of the Yorkist army that defeated the House of Lancaster in 1461, making Edward IV the first Yorkist king of England. The bull started to appear on coins and the Royal Arms during the 1560s when Elizabeth I ordered the recoinage of all silver coins.
