Introducing the brand new United Kingdom release from the Royal Mint
It is with much excitement that a new United Kingdom gold coin has been launched by the Royal Mint.
The next in the Queen’s Beasts series, which has proved to be arguably the Royal Mint’s greatest success story of recent years, the coin features the historic Black Bull of Clarence and has been struck in a quarter ounce of pure 24 Carat Gold – purer than the Sovereign. The coin has already SOLD OUT at the Mint, within a matter of just weeks of its launch.
The Black Bull of Clarence
The Black Bull of Clarence is one of the ten heraldic Queen’s Beasts. The Queen’s Beasts featured prominently at the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, a striking line-up of statues that acted as a reminder of the centuries of tradition that went before her. Now, in the year that we celebrate her Coronation Jubilee, a brand new limited-edition coin has been designed by Jody Clark celebrating one of these beasts – the Black Bull of Clarence.
A symbol of power and might, the Black Bull of Clarence is associated with the rise of the House of York during the fifteenth century. The bull first appeared on the Royal Arms in the 1560s in the reign of Elizabeth I.
24 Carat Gold – rapid sell out
The Black Bull of Clarence coin is struck in a quarter ounce of fine 24 Carat Gold – purer than the UK Sovereign, which is minted in just 22 Carat Gold - and to a peerless proof finish by the mastercraftsmen of the Royal Mint. The coin is also housed within an official Royal Mint Presentation Case and comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
This certificate attests to the overall mintage that has been set at just 1,500 coins worldwide. A tiny mintage for a United Kingdom Quarter Ounce Gold coin. This has been underlined by the fact that the coin has already sold out at the Royal Mint – within a matter of weeks.
This demand was a result of the purity and small mintage – but was also due to the fact that the all three previous Queen’s Beasts Quarter Once Gold issues have sold out and already command huge levels of interest on the secondary market. It seems certain that the Black Bull of Clarence will generate similar long term demand.
