On the obverse side of 2022 10 oz Silver Tudor Beasts Lion Coins is an image of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen is shown here in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown and is shown at the age of 89. Her Majesty’s effigy depicted here comes from Jody Clark and was designed in 2015.
The reverse field of the 2022 Silver British Tudor Beasts Lion Coins comes with a depiction of the might Lion of England. Chosen as a heraldic beast in England during the 12th century, the lion was popularized by King Richard I and became the prominent figure in the first Royal Arms as adopted by Richard the Lionheart in 1198. In this design, the Lion of England supports the impaled arms of King Henry VIII and Jane Seymour.
