The Tudor Dynasty started with Henry Tudor, the victor of the Wars of the Roses between the House of Lancaster and the House of York. He succeeded the last Yorkist monarch, King Richard III, following the latter’s death in battle against Henry Tudor’s forces. The Tudor Dynasty ruled from 1485 to 1603 and featured larger-than-life monarchs, including King Henry VIII and his daughter, Queen Elizabeth I.
The obverse of 2022 Gold Tudor Beasts Lion Coins comes with an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. England’s longest-reigning monarch, Elizabeth II is shown here in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. Created in 2015 by Jody Clark, this portrait shows the Queen at the age of 89.
On the reverse side of 2022 1 oz Gold Tudor Beasts Lion Coins is a depiction of the Lion of England, the oldest heraldic beast associated with the monarchy. The Lion of England was first featured in the personal seal of King Richard I and became part of the Royal Arms by 1198. Here, the crowned Lion of England supports a shield that features the impaled, or combined, arms of King Henry VIII and Jane Seymour.
