Following the success of the 10-coin Queen’s Beast Series, the Royal Mint of England moves on to focus on a singular dynasty to rule the monarchy of England. The Tudor Dynasty sat on the throne from 1485 to 1603 and was dominated by powerful and highly influential monarchs. The heraldry of the Tudor Dynasty is as impressive as the entirety of the monarchy’s history.
The obverse side of the 2022 British Silver Tudor Beasts Lion Coin comes with a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. This design was created for the Royal Mint in 2015 by Jody Clark and serves as the fifth-generation portrait of the Queen for British coinage.
On the reverse field of 2022 2 oz Silver Tudor Beasts Lion Coins is a depiction of the Lion of England supporting the Royal Arms of King Henry VIII and his third wife, Jane Seymour. The crowned Lion of England is the oldest heraldic beast in English history. Here, the Lion of England supports a shield with the combined arms of King Henry VIII and Jane Seymour, her own arms being a combination of her personal arms and that of her family.
