The 10th and final coin in the Royal Mint’s series of heraldic animals, the Queen’s Beast coins, this 1/4 oz gold coin is absolutely outstanding. It’s truly a delight to see such painstaking craftsmanship in such a small package! 

The reverse of this 2021 1/4 oz gold coin features the White Greyhound of Richmond, an ancient and noble Lancastrian badge dating from the 1300s. John of Gaunt, the first Duke of Lancaster, took the greyhound as his family’s heraldic badge. Greyhounds weren’t racing dogs back then, nor were they the pampered couch potatoes of today – greyhounds were hunting dogs, faster than anything else on two legs. The White Greyhound of Richmond is clearly an alert and fearsome beast! It’s presented rampant (on its hind legs), front legs poised for leaping as it glances over its shoulder for prey. (Note also the heavy collar around its neck – see? Hunting dog!) The foreground has the seal of the House of Tudor, including the famed red-and-white Tudor rose that symbolized the end of the Wars of the Roses and unity between former enemies. The coin’s year of mintage, weight and purity appears on its edge.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was related to John of Gaunt through her many-greats grandfather, King Henry VII, whose father Edmund Tudor was awarded the title Earl of Richmond. 

The obverse of this Queen’s Beast gold coin bears the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II herself, the fifth-generation Jody Clark version used in circulating British coinage from 2016 to 2022. The gold coin’s face value of £25 appears as well as the text "ELIZABETH II • D • G • REG • F • D •" This is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase "Dei Gratia Regina Fidei Defensor," or translated reads "By Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith." This is the same inscription that appears on British gold sovereigns.

You’ll note an intricate, repeating pattern (guilloche to use the technical term) in the background of both sides of the coin. This is an anti-counterfeiting measure that has the delightful side effect of making this coin truly beautiful. 

As the final installment of the Queen’s Beast series, this fractional gold coin is imminently collectible. We only have a handful in stock, so if you want your very own greyhound, better order yours right now!

How long this takes varies based on your payment method, the size of your order, and your specific products. Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email confirmation, with a link to find your shipment tracking information on your account page.

Do you ship internationally?
No, not at this time.

How do you prepare packages for shipment?
All your purchased products are packaged under video surveillance to ensure quality control and packages are carefully and discreetly wrapped in generic corrugated boxes.

How do you ship my order?
We ship via Registered/Insured U.S. Postal Service and UPS in discreet, secure packaging. Each package is fully insured and may require a signature upon delivery. Packages take 1-10 business days for delivery. We’ll send your tracking number by email when your order ships.

Is my order insured while in transit?
Yes, BullionMax fully insures all of its shipments. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, it will be covered by our insurance policy.
However, we will not accept responsibility if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery services to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature, or if you have given the carrier instructions to leave your package with anyone other than the addressee. This includes but is not limited to a building manager, neighbor, a business mailroom, drop-off location such as Mail Boxes, etc., The UPS Store, the Military Postal Service, etc.
Additionally, we will not assume responsibility for packages that are signed for by apartment/complex building management, a business mailroom, the Military Postal Service, or any person(s) that are not the addressee listed on the order. When we ship to you, if metals are lost or damaged in transit, it is our responsibility to pursue any claim with the insurance company. If we determine the package is lost or damaged, we file a claim.
We reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our discretion.

Can you ship my order to my post office box?
No, we cannot ship to a post office box.

Do I have to sign for my shipment?
Packages we ship may not require a signature for delivery. Expedited shipping, whether via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service, requires a signature for delivery.

Do you ship to U.S. territories?
We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.

What does “No Will Call” mean?
All UPS shipments ship with a “No Will Call” restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted. UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.

Where do you ship orders from?
All orders will ship from our warehouse in Los Angeles, California. We conceal the return address on all packages so as to not hint at the contents of the package.

Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?
No, we do not. The costs of shipping to these states are extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments to Alaska and Hawaii.

Do we ship to P.O. Boxes?
No, we do not. Sorry.

No. UPS 3-Day Air service excludes shipments to UPS Stores, as well as Alaska, Hawaii and APO addresses.

My package appears to have been damaged or tampered with. What should I do?
We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with because the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to BullionMax for inspection.
If you have taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact call us at (800) 729-3202 during normal business hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday – Friday within 48 hours for further instructions. Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours from signature or delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.

What happens if my order is lost in transit?
We see very few delivery issues with our carriers, but sometimes delays do occur. In those situations, we appreciate your patience to wait a little longer for your package (at least 7 business days) before contacting us. Should the package not arrive, an investigation of the shipment is required before any order is reshipped or refunded. We may ask you to file a police report if it appears loss is due to theft or tampering. Your assistance speeds up the investigation and the sooner we complete it, the sooner we can resolve the missing order.
