2022 Tudor Beasts Lion Of England One Ounce Silver Proof 2 Coin Set

UK22TL2SP 2022 Tudor Beasts Lion Of England 1oz Silver Proof Set Boxed
Royal Tudor Beasts Lion of England two coin silver proof set from a limited edition presentation of 1,000. Both pieces feature the fearsome lion, a symbol associated with England since the twelfth century. The lion is one of the heraldic beasts included in a group of statues at Hampton Court Palace that celebrate the marriage of King Henry VIII to Jane Seymour. These statues inspired this new Royal Mint collection which kicked off with the Seymour Panther, the Lion of England, chasing after as the second release in the ten-part series. The Tudor Lion wears a royal crown and clutches a shield bearing the combined arms of King Henry and his third wife. This design, like all the coins in this collection, is the work of illustrator and sculptor David Lawrence. His lion is paired with Jody Clark's portrait of the late Queen Elizabeth II to the obverse of both of these coins. Both pieces are struck in one troy ounce of pure silver (31.21 grams of .999 Ag) to The Royal Mint's proof standard. The difference lies in the reverse finish: one features the standard proof finish, common to coins in this series, the other boasts an attractive frosted background with the devices rendered with a high-shine, mirrored appearance. Comparing the two really allows you to appreciate the fine detail of Lawrence's heraldic design. Very few of theses sets were issued and its the only way to get hold of the special frosted one ounce silver proof coin. These coins have a face value of £2 and come in their original presentation packaging with a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed.
