GSI Exchange is proud to present the smallest coins among the releases under the acclaimed Queen’s Beast coin series, the world-renown ¼ oz Queen’s Beast Gold Coins. This is a brand-new series kickstarted by the Royal Mint, featuring the lion from the ten beasts’ statues that adorned the coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II.
Each of these Queen’s Beast Gold Coins contains ¼ troy ounces of 0.9999 pure gold. Each set includes 2016 Lion, 2018 Bull of Clarence, 2019 Yale of Beaumont, 2020 White Horse, and the Latest 2020 White Lion of Mortimer. Furthermore, they enjoy a legal tender status in the United Kingdom with a face value of 25 GBP.
This set includes the very first release under this coin program and the latest release, which both happen to be a Lion. The imposing Lion is imprinted on the reverses of these coins, with one paw clutching the coat of arms of the Royal Family and the other poised to strike at the nation’s enemies.
The portrait of Queen Elizabeth II graces the obverses of these coins. The beautiful portrayal is attributed to a talented young artist named Jody Clark. In fact, he is the youngest artist to have the privilege of portraying Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for use on legal tender. Moreover, he has an impressive portfolio of designs under his belt at an astoundingly young age, including but not limited to, the 2014 Britannia coin design and the fifth portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Since it is the smallest coin in the Queen’s Beast release this ¼ oz Queen’s Beast Lion Gold Coin is a great way to structure distributions from your gold holdings in the future as the gold price climbs.
