2017 Great Britain 1/4 oz Gold Queen's Beast (Red Dragon) Coin .9999 Fine BU
This beautiful 2017 Great Britain 1/4 oz Gold Queen’s Beast (Red Dragon) Coin is the third coin released in the eagerly awaited Queen’s Beasts series from the Royal Mint. Struck from .9999 fine gold with weight of ¼ troy ounce, this remarkable coin is a great addition to any portfolio and a wonderful gift for any collector.
Founded over a millennium ago and being one of the most prestigious mints in the world, the Royal Mint introduced its recent, beautiful series, the Queen’s Beasts, in 2016. This impressive series celebrates centuries of British royalty and heraldic history by depicting new representations of the 10 British Heraldic Beasts which stood guard at Her Majesty’s coronation in 1953: the Lion of England, the Unicorn of Scotland, the Black Bull of Clarence, the Red Dragon of Wales, the Falcon of the Plantagenets, the White Lion Mortimer, the Yale of Beaufort, the Griffin of Edward III, and the White Horse of Hanover.
The Queen’s Beast Lion and Queen’s Beast Griffin were the first two coins released in the series, followed by the latest Queen’s Beast Red Dragon. The coin showcases the mighty red dragon holding a shield with 4 lions in its claws. The beast has been used on Owen Tudor’s badge, being also used by his grandson, Henry VII. During Tudor’s reign, the red dragon was depicted on the English Crown’s coat of arms. And now the Red Dragon of Cadwallader is the emblem on the national flag of Wales. All these details, along with the coin’s beautiful design and high purity make it a highly-desired addition and a wonderful gift.
