Immerse yourself in the captivating history of the monarchy with the Royal Mint’s latest collection of silver and gold coins. Departing from the previous Queen’s Beasts Series that graced the years 2016-2021, the new Tudor Beasts Series takes center stage. This remarkable collection pays homage to the renowned Tudor dynasty, which held the throne of England from 1485 to 1603. With a legacy that introduced some of the most iconic monarchs in British history, the Tudor Beasts Series offers a captivating glimpse into the world of the Tudors.
The images that will feature in the Tudor Beasts Series from the Royal Mint are inspired by the heraldic statues from the Moat Bridge leading into Hampden Court. Many of these emblems are closely associated with the rule of King Henry VIII, but in general, are reflective of the entire Tudor Dynasty. Designs to feature in this series include (not in a particular order):
The Tudor Dynasty finds its origins with King Henry VII, who ascended to the throne after his triumphant victory over King Richard III of the House of York in 1485 at the historic Battle of Bosworth. This decisive moment marked the end of the Wars of the Roses, a tumultuous period of conflict between the House of York and the House of Lancaster. Through his marriage to Elizabeth of York, Henry VII established the House of Tudor, envisioning a united realm from the factions that once warred against each other. While history remembers his son, King Henry VIII, and his granddaughter, Elizabeth I, more prominently, Henry VII laid the foundation for the illustrious Tudor legacy.
