Gold 1/4oz Griffin Beast

The Griffin Beast was the second design in the Royal Mint’s Queen’s Beasts ten coin bullion range.

This is a bullion finish coin, issued by the Royal Mint. Coins will be packaged loose for small quantities and orders of 25 or more may come in Royal Mint tubes.

If you’d like to further protect your coins, we offer coin capsules which fit perfectly.

The coin contains 1/4oz of 999.9 fine gold and has a face value of £25. It’s an exact miniature to the larger 1oz gold coin version.

The inspiration for this range came from the ten beasts sculpted by James Woodford which stood guard for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

Each beast in this range has been designed by Jody Clark.

Our Expert Opinion

The Queen’s Beast series of coins have proved extremely popular with both investors and coin collectors, and it’s not difficult to see why. At a quarter of an ounce, the coin is more accessible than its larger 1oz brother. In fact for those who’ve bought Sovereigns for years, the quarter ounce Gold Griffin offers a comparable alternative. Its modest size means that more coins can be bought and the buyer therefore has more flexibility to sell small parts of their holding in the future.

With its face value, the Griffin 1/4oz gold coin is classed as legal tender in the UK, which offers the huge benefit that any gains made on the coin is completely free from Capital Gains Tax. This may not be an issue if you’re just looking to buy one coin, but for anyone considering a more substantial investment, UK tax free gold coins such as this are essential. As the coin is produced to bullion finish, it commands a lower premium than proof coins and yet, it appeals to those seeking variety and coin collections. This two-pronged demand is a real positive for future capital value growth, and we’d expect their premium to rise quicker than standard issue coins as supplies become stretched.
