Historic Royal Palaces and The Royal Mint have launched a new range of licensed collectable and bullion coins celebrating The Royal Tudor Beasts.
The first coin in the collection – the Seymour Panther – was launched at Hampton Court Palace in October 2021, where the original Royal Beasts still welcome visitors today. The collection will be showcased on the company’s virtual stand at Brand Licensing Europe (30 November-1 December).
The Royal Tudor Beasts collection will be released over five years, with customers able to build their own collection celebrating the ten beasts chosen by King Henry VIII to line the Moat Bridge of Hampton Court Palace.
The coin is available in a range of precious metal Proof editions, as well as a Brilliant Uncirculated edition. The next coin in the collection will be released in spring 2022.
“We are very proud to be launching another successful collection of coins in partnership with our licensee The Royal Mint,” commented Emma Saunders, senior licensing manager at Historic Royal Palaces. |The Seymour Panther is inspired by one of the majestic Royal Beasts on the Moat Bridge at the entrance to Hampton Court Palace and symbolises the union of Henry VIII and his third wife, Jane Seymour.
“As an independent charity, each sale of Historic Royal Palaces’ licensed product helps support our cause and contributes to the future of the incredible buildings and collections in our care, which is more important now, than ever before.”
