On the obverse is Queen Elizabeth as designed by Jody Clark. Here the queen is shown at age 89 with her crown and pearl earrings. There is so much detail here you can make out the crow’s feet around her eyes. The image is over a textured background that really makes this design pop. Scrolling around the coin clockwise is ‘ELIZABETH II D.G.REG.F.D.’ The letters after the queen’s name stand for the Latin phrase, “Dei gratia regina fidei defensatrix” which means “by the grace of God queen, defender of the faith”.
On the reverse side of the coin is an image of the Lion of England, a symbol of courage, strength, dignity and pride. This is a depiction of the same lion that appears on the Mote Bridge of Hampton Court. Here is is looking ferocious and holding the Coat of Arms of Henry VIII and his wife, Jane Seymour. Running clockwise starting to the right of the lion is ‘LION OF ENGLAND 1 OZ FINE GOLD 999.9 2022’.
Over the next five years, the Royal Tudor Beasts of England Series will have several beasts released. The beasts in the series are: The Seymour Panther, The Lion of England, the Bull of Clarence, the Tudor Dragon, the Greyhound of Richmond, the Royal Dragon, the Yale of Beaufort, the Seymour Unicorn, the Queen’s Panther, and the Queen’s Lion.

I like the unique heraldry to this coin and the series as a whole. I can’t wait to see what the British mint puts out because I’d like to collect more. I really like the design of the Lion holding the shield.
