2 oz Tudor Beasts Unicorn Silver Coin | 2024

We present to you with this impressively designed coin another beautiful specimen from the world-renowned mint The Royal Mint from the series "The Royal Tudor Beasts". The ten heraldic beasts, which you can admire at the moat bridge of Hampton Court Palace, were commissioned by King Henry VIII and were intended to symbolize the legitimacy of his rule at that time. These animals were signs of his royal lineage. The unicorn depicted on the coin is the 5th edition of the series "The Royal Tudor Beasts". The unicorn has been attributed with many attributes: it was considered the strongest creature and a symbol of purity and fertility. Especially fertility was a major theme for Henry VIII as he eagerly desired a male heir.

The Obverse

The design of this unicorn is a creation of the artist David Lawrence. The coat of arms that the animal "carries" seems to hold special significance, as it is securely fastened to the base of the coin by a sort of chain. Around the animal, you can read the inscription "SEYMOUR UNICORN", the year of issue "2024", the weight "2 oz", "FINE SILVER", and the purity "999.9".

The Reverse

Here you see the effigy of King Charles III, who, unlike his mother Queen Elizabeth II, gazes to the left. Surrounding this portrait, you will read the inscription "CHARLES III. D G REX F D". These letters abbreviate the Latin motto "Dei gratia rex fidei defensor", which translates into English as "By the grace of God, King, Defender of the Faith". Following this is the face value of this silver coin, "5 POUNDS". Upon close inspection around the neck of the king, you will find the initials "MJ", which are the initials of the British sculptor Martin Jennings, who created this portrait of Charles III, personally approved by His Majesty.
