Limited edition two oz silver proof coin featuring a historic portrait of King Henry VII.

The British Monarchs Collection

British coinage provides a fascinating insight into the reigns of the nation’s monarchs, documenting developments in politics, art and technology across the centuries. The Royal Mint are celebrating this rich legacy with a new series focusing on the royals whose faces have graced our currency.

Billed as a five-year series, the British Monarchs collection will feature 21 Kings and Queens, starting with Tudor dynasty.

The first release features King Henry VII. He was the last English monarch to win his crown in battle, coming to the throne in 1485 after his victory at the Battle of Bosworth Field. He brought stability to the realm after a period of civil war and was peacefully succeeded by his son, Henry VIII, in 1509. Numismatically, his reign is remembered for the introduction of a large gold coin, called a Sovereign.

Coinage of Henry VII

The reverse of coins in this new collection features a right-facing crowned portrait of Henry VII, inspired by the profile that appeared on the silver coins issued late in this king's reign, attributed to Alexander of Bruchsal. The remastered design - the work of Royal Mint Chief Engraver Gordon Summers - combines the hand-crafted charm of historic hammered coinage and the refinement of modern minting technology.

This is paired with the current official coinage portrait of Her Majesty the Queen by Jody Clark, in use on British money since 2015. The obverse bears the inscription 'ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 5 POUNDS · 2022 ·'.

999 Silver Proof Coin

Struck in 62.86 grams of 999 fine silver, this 2022 coin has a face value of £5 / Five Pounds and a diameter of 40.00 millimetres. It's finished to proof standard and features a milled edge.
