Why add this Royal Tudor Beasts series 2022 Lion of England Silver Proof coin to your collection?
The Royal Mint's Royal Tudor Beasts collection is inspired by the ten heraldic statues that line the Moat Bridge of Hampton Court Palace, which represent the legacy of King Henry VIII and his third wife, Jane Seymour. The second release of the series is dedicated to the Lion of England. Symbolizing courage, royalty and strength, the lion is one of the oldest and most iconic beasts in British heraldry.
Stunning Heraldic Imagery
Obverse: Centered on the obverse is an image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem which was made for King George IV in 1820. Surrounding inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "D.G. REG. F.D." and "2 POUNDS." This right facing interpretation of the monarch was designed by award-winning British sculptor Jody Clark in 2015.
Reverse: The Lion of England is depicted on the reverse, with a crown upon its head. The creature grasps a shield adorned with the combined arms of Henry VIII and Jane Seymour. The image border contains the inscriptions "LION OF ENGLAND" and "2022," with "HAMPTON COURT PALACE ROYAL TUDOR BEASTS" appearing on the coin's edge. Acclaimed British illustrator David Lawrence created the gorgeous heraldic design.
