For more than 800 years, the Royal Arms of England has featured one steady design element: the Three Lions. First adopted by King Richard I, better known as Richard the Lionheart, the Royal Arms of England has been adapted over time to identify the royal claims of various monarchs and the nations within the kingdom. Only the Three Lions have remained steady over the course of time. Today, you have the chance to purchase 2020 British Royal Arms 1 oz Platinum Coins online from Provident Metals.
King Richard I often carried shields and colors into battle with his English armies that included one or two lions. The lion had been used by his father, King Henry II, in heraldic shields as well as other previous Saxon and Danish kings to rule over portions of England. Richard I eventually adopted a design that featured a field of red with three golden lions in the passant guardant pose as his coat of arms. This became the first officially recognized Royal Arms of England. It is still used in the arms to this day.
