2024 King Charles III Tudor Beasts 'The Tudor Dragon' 1oz 999.9 Gold Proof Coin - LIMITED TO 250 PIECES

The Tudor Dragon is the sixth coin in the Royal Tudor Beast series from the Royal Mint . Launched October 2021 the series when complete will depict all 10 Tudor Beasts of Henry VIII which stand on guard at the entrance to the famous Kings favourite Palace Hampton Court.

Adopted as a symbol by all Tudor monarchs in honour of their regal Welsh heritage, the Tudor Dragon stands as a ferocious heraldic beast. Dragons were prominent signets during the medieval period and were notably used by Owen Tudor, Henry VIII’s great-grandfather. Henry VIII therefore claimed the symbol as a link to Cadwaladr, the king of Gwynedd in Wales from around AD 655 to 682. According to contemporary manuscripts, the Tudor Dragon had a red head, back and wings and a gold underside.

2024 King Charles III Tudor Beasts 'The Seymour Unicorn' 1oz 999.9 Gold Proof Coin. Issue Limit 250

The Seymour Unicorn is the fifth coin in the Royal Tudor Beast series from the Royal Mint . Launched October 2021 the series when complete will depict all 10 Tudor Beasts of Henry VIII which stand on guard at the entrance to the famous Kings favourite Palace Hampton Court.

Before being chosen by Henry VIII to flank the Moat Bridge of Hampton Court Palace, the unicorn was rarely used as a royal heraldic beast. The Tudor monarch’s decision to include it may lie in its symbolism, as the unicorn represents purity and fertility, and the king desperately needed the ‘gods of fertility’ to bless his third wife with a son who could perpetuate the dynasty. The unicorn is a mythical creature that appears in the Bible and was recognised by the ancient Greeks. It has an interesting biological composition, possessing the body of a horse with more often than not the cloven hooves and beard of a goat, a lion’s tail, and a slender, spiral horn on its forehead.
