Quarter Ounce Queen's Beast Gold Coins

SD Bullion is proud to present the smallest coin among the 2016 releases under the acclaimed Queen’s Beast coin series, the 2016 ¼ oz Queen’s Beast Gold Coin. This is a brand-new series kickstarted by the Royal Mint, featuring one beast 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. Furthermore, they enjoy legal tender status in the United Kingdom with a face value of 25 GBP.

This is the very first release under this coin program, and these gold coins display the Heraldic Lion of England. 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 releases from the year 2016, this ¼ oz Queen’s Beast Lion Gold Coin is an economical way of obtaining the very first release under this brand-new series.
