Continuing the celebration of the new Royal Tudor Beasts series, this £5 will take you back to the time of King Henry VIII and the mighty Tudor dynasty!

The Lion of England is one of ten magnificent King’s Beasts sculptures you’ll find if you visit Hampton Court Palace. For hundreds of years, these heraldic beasts have stood guard — still and silent on the Moat Bridge of the Palace — representing the Royal lineage of King Henry VIII and Jane Seymour.

Known for courage, strength and valour, the lion has featured on the shield of England for as long as it has existed and remains an iconic symbol of England to this day.

Detailed Design

Sculptor David Lawrence’s exquisite engraving depicts the beast in all its glory, holding a shield bearing the combined arms of Henry
VIII and Jane Seymour.

What’s more, the impressive size of the £5 coin is the perfect way to show off such detail — one of the reasons why £5 coins are the go-to issues for serious UK new issue coin collectors.
