First in the New Tudor Beasts Series From the British Royal Mint - 2022 Lion of England in 2 Oz .9999 Silver

Money Metals Exchange is proud to offer the Lion of England - first in the new Tudor Beasts series. This stunning 2 Ounce .9999 fine silver bullion coin is minted at London's Royal Mint. It is first in a series 10 planned coins by London's Royal Mint. It is a limited mintage from one of the world’s oldest and most famous refineries.

The Tudor Beasts series follows the popular Queen’s Beasts Series of gold and silver coins. The Queen’s Beasts series featured 10 heraldic creatures captured from 800 years of the British monarchy. The Tudor Beasts series focuses specifically on the House of Tudor. Tudor nobility employed a variety of beasts as symbols of the crown.

The Tudor reign began with Henry VIII who led the House of Lancaster when Wars of the Roses finally ended. He defeated King Richard III of the House of York at the Battle of Bosworth and moved to legitimize his claim to the throne by marrying Elizabeth of York. The House of Tudor was founded in 1485. He and his heirs controlled the throne of England until 1603.

The silver mint coins which commemorate the Tudor reign have been beautifully crafted by the Royal Mint, which was founded hundreds of years before the House of Tudor. The coins ship individually or in mint tubes of 10. A full mint coin box contains 200 coins (400 ozs.). Each hefty coin is denominated as 5 British pounds - legal tender backed by the government of the United Kingdom. 

The coin's obverse carries a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in high relief along with her name and the 5 pound denomination. The reverse features a crowned lion and England's official heraldic shield. The reverse also identifies the coin as "Lion of England" and displays the coin’s weight, purity, metal content, and date.

Royal Mint artist Jody Clark updated her Majesty’s portrait on the to reflect her age - something the Royal Mint had not done since 1998 when Sir Ian Rank-Broadley created the right-profile portrait still in use by some mints. Her Majesty's portrait has been updated 5 times since first appearing on British coinage in 1952.

The artist behind the Beasts on each coin's reverse is David Lawrence. Lawrence, an illustrator, sculptor and painter with more than 30 years experience, has spent recent years working in museums and designing coins. His prior work for The Royal Mint includes the 2018 and 2019 Britannia Proof coins.

The Royal Mint was founded in London during the 9th century.

You can also look into other silver bullion coins and bars. Silver rounds tend to sell for less, compared to silver coins. While silver bars are a great to invest in larger forms of silver bullion, with most people starting off with a one ounce silver bar, then adding larger sizes to their holding.  If you prefer gold, over the Silver Tudor Beast Lion, you can check out other British Coins gold coins here

This a great minted coin and I really appreciate MoneyMetals packaging. But one suggestion I would have is to use a reliable carrier like UPS.

Blown Away

By Morgan H. on November 6th, 2022

I order online a lot, I basically shop for a living, and I was blown away at how good their Customer Service and orders are. I got my coins in two days. I ordered them on Sept 12 in the evening and by Sept 15 they were delivered in the afternoon. The packaging was the best I've received any coins in and their communication and follow up prompted me to leave a positive review on the BBB website. Honestly, in all my years ordering online, this has been my best experience.
