Queensland Mint is proud to present the 2022 2oz Royal Tudor Beasts Lion of England Silver Coin from the Royal Mint (UK).
The Royal Tudor Beasts Collection. The Royal Mint has once again undertaken a collection to celebrate England's royal heritage: the Royal Tudor Beasts Series. This time around, The Royal Mint is focusing on the heraldic beasts that were prominent during Henry VIII’s reign. The beasts will include The Seymour Panther, The Lion of England, The Bull of Clarence, The Tudor Dragon, The Greyhound of Richmond, The Royal Dragon, The Yale of Beaufort, The Seymour Unicorn, The Queen's Panther and The Queen's Lion.
The Lion of England, one the most iconic beasts in heraldry, has been part of royal emblems for as long it exists. This majestic feline first appears on a shield bearing King Henry VIII’s arms at Hampton Court Palace impaled – or combined – with Jane Seymour’s coat of arms between them to symbolize pride and courage to represent those qualities clearly shown throughout this story about how two people came together not just by marriage but also with true love.
