A sensational addition to a much-admired series, the 2020 £100 White Greyhound of Richmond Gold Proof Coin is a key element of the Queen’s Beasts Coin Collection.

The Queen’s Beasts

Signifying the genealogy of Elizabeth II, the Queen’s Beasts are ten heraldic statues that stood guard at the Queen’s coronation in 1953. Including the White Lion of Mortimer, the Falcon of the Plantagenets and the Griffin of Edward III, to name but a few, the Queen’s Beasts represent an inspired concept for a coin series.

The White Greyhound of Richmond

Present in Britain during Roman times, greyhounds were bred to chase game, and were included in royal hunting packs as early as the 12th century. In heraldry, the greyhound is associated with fitness, skill and loyalty. The greyhound was elevated to royal status by King Edward III, and his descendants used the greyhound as a badge. It became closely associated with the House of Lancaster before passing to the Tudor family. The first Tudor monarch, Henry VII, who defeated Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field to claim the crown in 1485, displayed it to emphasise his dynastic right to rule.

Struck from 1oz of 99.99% gold

A unique British legal tender tribute to this proud beast, this coin from Britain’s Royal Mint is struck to impeccable Proof quality from a troy ounce of 99.99% pure, prestigious gold. Created by Royal Mint designer Jody Clark, who also created the obverse portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the reverse design captures the heraldic power of the White Greyhound of Richmond perfectly.
