We’ve already covered the last of the Queen’s Beasts bullion coins with a new Bullion Coin Profile of the whole ten-coin series, so we won’t go over the whole thing again. The main difference as far as this release goes, is while the White Greyhound was the final bullion coin issue, because of a blip early in the series lifespan, this is only the 9th proof range.
A good looking coin, of course, as they have all been, we like how clean these are in comparison to the bullion variant. This is down to the absence of the ‘chain-mail’ background pattern. The only downside is the increase in the width of the border area, which we feel gives a slightly too claustrophobic look to the beast. Again, a minor point and you may feel differently. The obverse is the typical Jody Clark effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, as you would expect. The video lower down is from the last release, but we’ll update should they release a newer one.
No changes regarding the range of sizes on offer, although some very minor alterations to mintage numbers. Four silver coins range from 1 oz to 1 kilo, and four gold coins run from ¼ oz to 1 kilo. There’s a brilliant uncirculated base metal variant for those that collect them. We’re giving up commenting on price changes given the volatility in the market through 2020, but the seem in line with previous issues. Available to order now, most of the gold has already sold out, in line with hugely increased interest in the UK and around the world.
