    I think this may be one of those designs where the proof version looks better than the bullion version.
    For those of you in the UK and over a certain age - the design reminds me of the Hofmeister lager 'follow the bear' ads in the 80s 😋

    Unless you think the current silver/gold price is the lowest it's going to be for the next year there's no need to rush to pre-order the bullion coins as they're minted in unlimited quantities for an entire year. Plenty for everybody...

    The horse could be good if it's not pumped-up like He-Man, or totally 'chonky' like the unicorn. Would also be nice it the design didn't leave too much exposed background.
    The greyhound is going to be a real challenge but I live in hope.
    So far the first three in the series are stand-out winners to me and I would have bought them even if they were one-offs. The unicorn was not too bad. I'm also partial to the falcon, although I realize I'm probably in the minority there. To be honest there hasn't been a really bad coin for me (this isn't the UK lunar series!), but the bull, yale, and white lion I wouldn't buy if they weren't in the series.

    All the best wishes with your family health.

    Well, I've given it some thought ... and as some on the Forum have already rightly noted, this coin is clearly lacking something.
    It just needs that certain 'wow' factor to be added to the mix ...  to persuade all of us discerning stackers and collectors to fully engage with it.
    So, in my own small way, I thought I'd try to help the Royal Mint out a bit ...

     
    I know! Right? ... Only the most subtle of changes. Yet, the piece is effectively transformed!
    Moreover, we can now fully understand where they were intending to go with this ...
     

     
    No, Royal Mint! Put your wallet away. A simple 'thank you' will suffice.

    Not that impressed with the new coin.  I have decided that the back paw should be holding something.
    Here is my version. The Duff Lion.

    Is the lion "blinged"?  Looks like it's wearing rings on each finger/paw.

    Always feels like it's worth reviving this thread when gold climbs to a new high. 
    As a reminder :
    April 2017 - guy joined forum and asked for advice on which coins to buy. Following the excellent advice of the users here he bought:
    3 x Britannia (2016, 2017)
    1 x Queen's Beasts Lion
    2 x Queen's Beasts Dragon
    2 x Queen's Beasts Griffin
    November 2018 - without asking anyone's advice he panicked and sold them at melt price (maybe £930/oz) to Atkinsons, who turned around and sold them on their site for £1300+ each.
    Value today? Spot price around £1250/oz, roughly 35% above the spot price at the time he panicked. Resale value of those QBs? Probably at least 30% higher still. I'd say he'd have been looking at maybe 75% more today on those QB's than he sold them for 9 months ago.
