2021 Great Britain 2 oz Silver Queen’s Beasts – The White Greyhound of Richmond £5 Coin GEM BU
The Royal Mint’s ten-coin Queen’s Beasts series continues with the release of this silver bullion coin honoring the White Greyhound of Richmond. The series is a pictorial history of the heraldry of British monarchy and the powerful legacy of the Queen. In heraldry, the greyhound is associated with fitness, skill, faithfulness and loyalty.
Featured on the reverse is a beautifully sculpted White Greyhound with its front paw supporting a heraldic shield adorned an image of the Royal Crown perched upon the Tudor Rose. Inscriptions include “WHITE GREYHOUND OF RICHMOND,” “2 OZ FINE SILVER,” “999.9” and “2021.”
An elegant portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is centered on the obverse, dramatically contrasted against an intricate guillotine patterned background. Inscribed “ELIZABETH II, D.G. REG. F.D., 5 POUNDS.” Jody Clark has been a sculptor for The Royal Mint since 2012. His effigy of the Queen is notably the first monarch coinage portrait to be commissioned to a Mint employee in more than 100 years.
