The Dragon 1/4 oz Fine Gold Bullion Coin | The Royal Mint

The Queen's Beasts 2017 - The Dragon Quarter Ounce Fine Gold Bullion Coin

  • A new, exclusive bullion range from The Royal Mint with orginal reverse designs
  • Struck in quarter- ounce of 999.9 fine gold
  • Minted to bullion standard
  • The third in a series of ten designs that will celebrate each of The Queen’s Beasts
  • Both obverse and reverse by British Coin Designer Jody Clark, creator of the latest definitive portrait of The Queen on UK coinage

The latest addition to our Queen’s Beasts bullion range takes its inspiration from centuries of royal heraldry. The background for this range comes from the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, where ten heraldic beasts stood guard, The Queen’s Beasts, sculpted by James Woodford RA for the coronation ceremony.

The coins each depict one of The Queen’s Beasts, reimagined by Royal Mint coin designer Jody Clark. Jody also created the most recent definitive coinage portrait of Her Majesty to appear on United Kingdom coins. The Celtic dragon represents sovereignty and power. The Welsh dragon was used in the Royal Arms in the sixteenth century and the Red Dragon of Cadwallader is the emblem of Wales. This will be the third in a series of ten designs that will celebrate each of The Queen’s Beasts.
