Each 2018 ¼ oz Gold British Queen’s Beast Black Bull Coin listed here is individually sealed in a plastic slab by the NGC to protect its near-perfect condition. The Mint State 69 grade means the coins exhibit full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. You’ll find these flaws limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines found outside the primary focal points.
The Early Release label issued along with these coins indicates the arrival of the coins for certification. Each one was received by the NGC within the initial 30-day window following the 2018 release date for Queen’s Beast Black Bull coins set by the Royal Mint.
The Black Bull of Clarence was first adopted by Roger Mortimer, the Duke of Clarence and great-grandfather of the future King Edward IV. Edward IV was the first Yorkist King of England, but not the first to use the Black Bull in his Royal Arms. For more than 200 years, Lancastrian, Yorkist, and Tudor monarchs used the beast in the Royal Arms.
On the reverse of the 2018 ¼ oz Gold British Queen’s Beast Black Bull coin is the massive, powerful bull. It is shown with the Royal Arms first adopted by Richard I and Edward III. The former added the two quadrants of golden Lions of England, while the latter is responsible for the two quadrants of golden lilies of France to support his claim to the throne of France.
The obverse of the Gold British Queen’s Beast Black Bull Coins includes Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy. This portrait of Her Majesty comes from the Royal Mint’s Jody Clark, and represents a fifth-generation depiction during her long reign as Queen of England.
