Building on the success of the Queen's Beasts, the Seymour Panther is the first release in a new series called the Tudor Beasts and is here offered on a stunning One Kilo silver proof coin.

The King's Tudor Beasts

The ten-coin Queen's Beasts series wrapped up in 2021 with a completer coin featuring all the mythological creatures that starred on the sought-after earlier issues. The Royal Mint has now unleashed a new collection of creatures, created in collaboration with Historic Royal Palaces.

The King's Tudor Beasts are inspired by a series of heraldic statues at Hampton Court Palace that represent the lineage of Henry VIII and his third queen, Jane Seymour. They are symbols of the strength of the Tudor dynasty and, as subjects for coinage, are a clever means of celebrating a fascinating period of British history.

The Hampton Court statues include heraldic supporters that would feature on the Queen's Beasts coins but there are significant differences. Now we've seen the first coin in the series - the Seymour Panther - we know that the Tudor-inspired designs will distinguish this exciting series.

You can read more about the connection between the Queen’s Beasts and the King’s Beasts in a recent blog post: The Tudor Beasts: Seymour Panther Opens New Royal Mint Series.

The Seymour Panther

The fire-breathing beast that kicks off the Tudor Beasts series is the Seymour Panther, a symbol adopted by Jane Seymour on her marriage. Depicted as a spotted big cat, the fearsome Panther was reportedly chosen for Jane as it made an easy replacement for her predecessor, Anne Boleyn's leopards which adorned royal palaces before her execution.

David Lawrence is the artist behind this beast and the rest of the creatures in the collection. His depiction makes a fantastic creature look remarkably lifelike and shows the panther clutching a version of the Seymour coat of arms: two birds wings 'conjoined in lure'.

Speaking about his design for the coin's reverse, Lawrence said:

'The Tudors would draw beasts that they had never before seen, basing their interpretations off reports or word-of-mouth. Therefore, these beasts are roughly 70% fictionalised. My aim was to take inspiration from these Tudor-carved beasts and modernise them, without losing their historical or heraldic importance.'
