United Kingdom. 5 Pounds 2022 'Tudor Beast Löwe von England' Colorized - 2 oz

Royal Tudor Beasts ‘Lion of England’ silver coin in colour
The double ounce in extremely pure 999 fine silver is dedicated to the Lion of England. The lion is one of the earliest animals to appear in royal emblems; a traditional symbol of strength and bravery.

The first recorded use was as a gift of a blue shield adorned with small golden lions, given to Geoffrey Plantagenet by Henry I when he married Henry's daughter Matilda in 1127. For as long as England has had its own shield, it has always displayed the lion in some form - the Norman kings of England used motifs featuring the fierce beast, a tradition that became consistent under Henry II and his son Richard I the Lionheart in the twelfth century.
