About the Royal Mint:


These are official sovereign silver coins guaranteed by the British government. You can find also other official United Kingdom Royal Mint coins available here.

In 1536, the infamous King Henry VIII commisioned the carving of ten stone sculptures in honor of his marriage to Jane Seymour (they were engaged the day after the execution of his previous wife, Anne Boleyn). Each of the ten animals depicted in the sculptures represent the heraldry of different branch of Henry and Jane's respective ancestries. These sculptures - the "King's Beasts" - stand to this day on a moat bridge at Henry VIII's primary English residence, Hampton Court Palace.

In advance of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953, some four hundred years later, a similar set of sculptures were commissioned. These sculptures also depicted the different mythical creatures representing the various branches of Elizabeth's family in the heraldic system. The sculptures themselves were plaster, not stone, and are now on display indoors at a museum in Canada. Stone replicas are on display in Kew Gardens, London.

The Royal Mint is one of the oldest and most well-respected national mints in the world. The purity, quality, and collectibility of these coins make them an excellent investment choice.
