The Queen’s Beasts Collection nears its conclusion with the penultimate release in this ten-coin series. Chosen as one of the ten ancestral beasts that lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey at Her Majesty The Queen’s coronation, the White Greyhound of Richmond has been reimagined for modern times by acclaimed designer Jody Clark. His mix of dynamic realism and heraldic symbolism is a signature of this series. The coin is available in a range of precious metal Proof editions, as well as a Brilliant Uncirculated edition.

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.

When Her Majesty The Queen was crowned in 1953, the entrance to Westminster Abbey was guarded by ten fantastical creatures. The Queen’s Beasts were six-foot-tall statues that symbolized the heritage and history Queen Elizabeth II inherited that day. These royal protectors have been brought to life in a collection named in their honor, which began in the year The Queen became the world’s longest reigning living monarch.

In heraldry, the greyhound is associated with qualities such as fitness and skill, as well as faithfulness and loyalty. Descendants of Edward III used the greyhound as a badge and it became closely associated with the House of Lancaster before passing to the Tudor family.
