2021 United Kingdom Greyhound of Richmond Quarter Ounce Gold Proof Coin

  Description    Specifications     Free Delivery  


Introducing another United Kingdom sell out coin

It is with much excitement that a new United Kingdom gold coin has just been launched by the Royal Mint. Featuring the White Greyhound of Richmond, the new quarter ounce coin has been struck in 24 Carat Gold – purer than the Sovereign. The coin has already SOLD OUT at the Mint, within a matter of just days of its launch.

The White Greyhound of Richmond

The White Greyhound of Richmond 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.

And the design is truly magnificent – arguably one of the finest to feature on a new British coin for many years. Created by the same designer who produced the latest portrait of Her Majesty, which also appears on this new issue, the design features the heraldic White Greyhound of Richmond.

A symbol associated with qualities such as fitness and skill, as well as faithfulness and loyalty, the greyhound was first used as a royal beast by Edward III. Closely associated with the House of Lancaster, it later became a symbol of the Tudor family when it was bestowed on Edmund Tudor by his half-brother Henry VI. After slaying Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, Edmund’s son was crowned Henry VII. He used the white greyhound to display his Tudor and Lancastrian ancestry, denoting his right to rule.

24 Carat Gold – rapid sell out

The White Greyhound of Richmond 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 master-craftsmen 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 1,000 coins worldwide. A tiny mintage for a United Kingdom Quarter Ounce Gold coin and this has been underlined by the fact that the coin sold out at the Royal Mint within a matter of days.

This demand was a result of the purity and small mintage – but was also due to the fact that the all eight previous Queen’s Beast issues in the series that began in 2017 with the Lion of England, have all sold out. In addition, the latest White Greyhound coin has a mintage of just 1,000 pieces – which is 60% smaller than the first Queen’s Beasts release.

Exclusive allocation secured

However, as a collector with Harrington & Byrne, you are in an enviable position to be able to still secure this coin. Before the sell-out was achieved at the Royal Mint, we were able to secure an exclusive allocation of this hard-to-find Quarter Ounce United Kingdom Gold Coin. But based on the normal demand we have experienced for all the releases within this series to date, you will need to act extremely quickly to secure this coin.

Therefore, with this extremely limited supply at Harrington & Byrne for this sold out 2021 Gold Proof Coin release, I highly recommend an immediate response. Housed in official Royal Mint Presentation Case with Certificate of Authenticity, the 2021 United Kingdom White Greyhound of Richmond Quarter Ounce Gold Proof Coin has already proved to be exceptionally popular – don’t miss out and make sure you secure one of the 1,000 mintage.
