COIN INFORMATION

The White Greyhound of Richmond is the last release in the collection.

In 1449, Henry VI granted the earldom of Richmond to his half-brother Edmund Tudor. With this grant, Edmund received Henry’s permission to use a particular version of the Royal Arms featuring a white greyhound as a heraldic supporter. Edmund’s only son would become Henry VII when he defeated Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. The greyhound expressed both his Tudor and Lancastrian ancestry, through which he claimed the throne.

The shield the white greyhound is clutching shows the Tudor rose. Combining the red rose of Lancaster and the white rose of York, it symbolises how Henry VII united these warring houses, ending the Wars of the Roses. Artist Jody Clark captures the greyhound’s nobility, as well as its power and elegance. Featuring a secure chainmail background, the realism of the White Greyhound of Richmond is displayed to its fullest.

The coin’s reverse features a beautiful depiction of the White Greyhound of Richmond and a shield showing the crowned Tudor rose. The coin edge reads ‘White Greyhound Of Richmond’, details of the coins weight, fineness and the year-date also appear.

The obverse design depicts the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, and the monetary denomination of £5. Both the obverse and reverse are designed by British Coin Designer Jody Clark, creator of the latest definitive portrait of The Queen on UK coinage.

  1. Mphipps (verified owner)

    This final coin in the Queen’s Beasts Series isn’t the best design by any stretch but it’s still very well designed and looks amazing in the box next to the nine previous releases, so chuffed to have them all in my possession, thanks Martin for the Speedy Delivery as always.

  2. Vikki McPherson (verified owner)

    I agree, it is a great collection of 2oz coins from the Royal Mint.

  3. Peter (verified owner)

    Great to finish the set. Not the best coin in the series. In my opinion I would say the first is the Lion of England very closely followed by the Dragon, 3rd Griffin, 4th Yale, 5th Unicorn, 6th Lion of Mortimer, 7th Horse, 8th Bull, 9th Greyhound, 10th Falcon. I wonder if the royal mint will have any other 2oz coins series? Cheers again Martin.
