The Royal Mint of England is one of the foremost producers of gold and silver bullion in the world. In addition to releasing national currency for the United Kingdom, the Royal Mint issues bullion coinage. The Queen’s Beasts Series is one of its most recent examples of collectible coinage with a 10-coin release honoring the heraldry of the monarchy. Another collection is now available to history and monarchy enthusiasts in the form of the Tudor Beasts Series.
Up first in the Tudor Beasts Series is the heraldic animal from the badges and arms of Jane Seymour, the third wife of King Henry VIII. Upon her marriage to Henry VIII, Jane Seymour was gifted a panther as her heraldic beast by her new husband. The Queen Consort of King Henry VIII, Jane Seymour was represented in English heraldry with the Seymour Panther. The spotted panther is seated behind a shield that has the Seymour Wings on it, a set of angelic wings conjoined at the middle with the wingtips pointed downward. Inscriptions on this face include SEYMOUR PANTHER and 2022.
Each coin in the Proof Tudor Beasts Silver Series comes with individual Royal Mint packaging. The coins are housed in black presentation boxes and have a Certificate of Authenticity available with purchase. There are four weights available in the silver range that include 1 Kilo, 10 oz, 5 oz, and 1 oz, each with limited mintage figures.
Established in 1485, the Tudor Dynasty earned a reputation for scandals over the course of the 128 years it controlled the crown of England. King Henry VII, formerly Henry Tudor, established the dynasty with his defeat of King Richard III of the House of York at the Battle of Bosworth. His victory ended the Wars of the Roses between his House of Lancaster and the House of York. Henry’s marriage to Elizabeth of York solidified his position on the throne and secured a dynasty that would become infamous under the rule of his son, King Henry VIII, who was responsible for England’s break from Rome and the Roman Catholic Church. Queen Elizabeth I might be the most memorable monarch for good reasons as she led the kingdom through a bright period of growth.
