Edmund Tudor, Henry VII’s father, was the first to be created Earl of Richmond and the white greyhound was associated with the Honour of Richmond. During his reign, Henry VII officially replaced the English Lion with the White Greyhound in the coat of arms of England, which eventually were used on all his standards.
The Queen’s Beasts are ten heraldic statues representing the genealogy of Queen Elizabeth II which are depicted as the Royal supporters of England with each on consisting of a heraldic beat supporting a shield bearing the badge or arms of a family associated with the ancestry of Queen Elizabeth II. The original statues were commissioned to stand at an entrance of Westminster Abbey for Her Majesty’s Coronation in 1953.
The obverse of the coin features the Pobjoy Mint exclusive effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
