GOLD LINKS proudly offers the White Horse of Hanover from Britain’s Royal Mint. It is 9th in the popular gold Queens Beasts coin series which will ultimately include 10 designs. The Royal Mint just released this beautiful coin and the mintage will be limited. When the next bullion coin in the series is issued, production of White Horse gold coins will end forever. Add one to your collection while you still can.
The series commemorates the ten imposing statues that lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen. The statues were of the heraldic beasts – ancient symbols of power representing noble families and houses in the Queen’s line of ancestors.
The White Horse of Hanover links Queen Elizabeth to King George I. The coin’s reverse shows the Horse rearing behind a shield emblazoned with heraldic symbols of King George; the leopards of England, the lion of Scotland, the fleur-de-lis of France, the harp of Ireland and the Arms of Hanover. The White Horse was introduced to the Royal Arms in 1714 when George I, Duke of Hanover, ascended to the throne of all Great Britain, France and Ireland.
The coin’s obverse carries the iconic portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The weight and purity of this sovereign coin is guaranteed by the British government.

These stunning gold coins are carefully crafted and issued in limited release. If that isn’t enough to make them stand out, the beautiful image of the White Horse and shield of Hanover on the coin’s reverse certainly will. Each is minted with .9999 pure gold, and denominated with £100 (British pounds). The coins ship from the mint in boxes of 100 coins — 10 tubes filled with 10 coins each, though investors may buy in any quantity, with no minimum purchase.
Britain’s Royal Mint has been minting the coins of the realm for more than a thousand years. Sir Isaac Newton served as Warden of the Mint in 1696. Among other duties, he was responsible for investigating counterfeit coins. After 3 years in that role, he was appointed Master of the Mint, a title he retained until his death in 1727.
