The 2022 Tudor Beasts Lion of England 0.25 oz Gold Bullion Coin from The Royal Mint
Struck in 999.9 fine / 24-carat gold.
This Lion of England coin is the first bullion release in the Royal Mint's Tudor Beasts series. The coins are based on 10 heraldic statues representing King Henry VIII's heritage.
Designed by David Lawrence, the coin features a crowned lion baring its teeth while guarding Henry and Jane Seymour's coats of arms.
The coin also includes the added security feature of radial lines which appear behind the lion.
For centuries the lion has been used as a heraldic symbol. Its origins can be traced back to 1128, when King Henry I presented a shield of golden lions to one of his courtiers.
Epitomising strength, bravery and courage, the lion has continued to appear on royal coats of arms and heraldic shields.
The Tudor Beasts (also known as the King's Beasts) are a series of heraldic statues, which flank the moat bridge at Hampton Court Palace. The ten statues represent King Henry VIII's Tudor ancestry and his marriage to his third wife, Jane Seymour.
The obverse features Jody Clark's portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 25 POUNDS ·
The reverse was designed by David Lawrence and shows a crowned lion holding a shield. The words “LION OF ENGLAND” appear at the top, with the year “2022” at the bottom.
The shield features the combined arms of Henry VIII and Jane Seymour. Showing both arms together symbolises the strength of the couple.
