2022 Royal Mint 2oz Silver Proof Coin – Seymour Panther
The Royal Mint is proud to release the first coin in a collection commemorating the heraldic beasts of the mighty Tudor dynasty – The Seymour Panther, featuring a reverse design by the illustrator David Lawrence. This 2oz coin is the perfect addition for collectors with an interest in British history, or those who have an eye for design. Struck in 999 fine silver and finished to proof standard (the highest available from The Royal Mint), it’s the pioneer coin in a new line that you won’t want to miss out on. Get in while it’s fresh!
The Seymour Panther was given to Jane Seymour, Henry VIII’s third wife, by the king from the royal treasury of beasts. Although the stone beast is depicted as a ferocious animal, with flames coming from its mouth and ears, the Seymour Panther symbolised a peaceful and loving union between the king and consort who bore him the male heir he so desperately yearned for.
