2022 5 oz Silver Royal Tudor Beasts Lion of England Proof
The Lion of England has been a part of royal emblems and shields since as long ago as 1200 AD. It first appeared in the 12th century, chosen to represent pride and courage with the iconic look that is still seen today among other animals, like the one from heraldry codebook where they show how it should be stylized: "The lion passant guard." In Henry VIII's time, we see him represented by an impaled shield – the combined arms representing strength between two people who were married under church law, but had no marriage certificate.
