Tudor beast 1 oz gold lion of England 2022
Inspired by the majestic Royal Beasts that stand guard over the moat of Hampton Court Palace, the Royal Tudor Beasts bullion coin collection begins with the mighty Lion of England.
This beautiful gold coin of the Tudor Beast series celebrates the Tudor dynasty which was on the throne from 1485 to 1603. Strong, intimidating and regal, the lion was a fierce figure to greet visitors to Hampton Court Palace and embodied the values of Henry VIII and his kingdom.The original, gargoyle-like statue of the lion on the Moat Bridge at Hampton Court Palace has inspired the design of this coin.
The Lion featured on the reverse of this coin wears a crown and stands proud guarding Henry and Jane Seymour's coats of arms.
David Lawrence the coin designer has captured the characteristics of the beautiful Lion of England in all its glory, with a flowing mane and sharp claws, against a surface animation background texture. You should also note that the coin includes the added security feature of radial lines which appear behind the lion.
