The 10th and final coin in the Queen’s Beasts series is the White Greyhound of Richmond. The Queen’s Beasts illustrate the 10 famous statues that were placed in Westminster Abbey at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in June 1953 to guard her entrance. The original statues reside at the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec, replicas at Kew Gardens. The Beasts represent the Queen’s line of descent and legitimacy as heir.
The White Greyhound of Richmond links Queen Elizabeth II to her ancestor King Henry VII of the Tudor dynasty. The white greyhound was first used as a royal beast by Edward III, appearing on his Great Seal, and later by successive kings, including Henry VII until the greyhound was replaced with bulls by Edward IV. Henry VII father was Edmund Tudor, the 1st Earl of Richmond and the greyhound was a symbol of the Honour of Richmond.
