This is the fifth coin in the Royal Tudor Beasts Collection which represents the ten heraldic beasts that flank the Moat Bridge of Hampton Court Palace, representing the lineage of Henry VIII and his third wife, Jane Seymour.

The Seymour Unicorn follows the Bull of Clarence onto the latest coin in the collection. Before being chosen by Henry VIII to guard the Moat Bridge, the mythical unicorn wasn’t really known as a royal heraldic beast. Wild and untamed, the unicorn was believed to be the strongest of all creatures, so to have one set in stone outside the palace was a clear display of royal dominance. Many believed the unicorn also represented purity and fertility, and so by giving the beast to Jane Seymour, the king was perhaps hoping their marriage would be blessed with a son and heir.

This Brilliant Uncirculated cupro-nickel coin is housed in a blister-pack type folder with informative text and illustrations.
