nice coin, add to my collection. Thx
Where are the others? I was able to purchase the first 4 Beast coins, and then the notices stopped for months!!! Now I have the "penultimate"!!! Why did I not receive notice of the availability of nos. 5 thru 8? I am not happy about this and would appreciate the matter being dealt with, especially since I live in Canada and the actual beasts were given to Canada some years ago. Please correct these omissions!!!! Thank you.
UK 2021 White Greyhound of Richmond £5 BU Pack
BRAND NEW: White Greyhound of Richmond £5 BU Pack
Her Majesty the Queen is guarded by ten fantastical creatures known as The Queen’s Beasts.
The Beasts represent hundreds of years of ancestry, heritage and tradition and their heraldic statues guarded our monarch at her Coronation in 1953.
The Queen’s Beasts series has been a proven hit with collectors, and The Royal Mint has just released the 9th coin in the collection – the White Greyhound of Richmond.
In heraldry, the greyhound is associated with qualities such as fitness and skill, as well as faithfulness and loyalty. Elevated to royal status by Edward III, it later passed to the Tudor family, with Henry VII, displaying it to emphasise his dynastic right to rule.
The reverse of this coin features a heraldic depiction of the White Greyhound of Richmond by Jody Clark which truly captures the magnificence of the heraldic beast on the penultimate coin in the Queen’s Beasts collection.
This coin has been struck to Brilliant Uncirculated quality, so you know it will be free from any of the marks or blemishes you would find on coins in your change. It comes beautifully presented in bespoke packaging from The Royal Mint and is available at The Royal Mint issue price of JUST £13 (+p&p).
