The Royal Treasury of Beasts
The first coin in the Royal Tudor Beasts Collection features the Seymour Panther, which was given to Jane Seymour by the king from the royal treasury of beasts.
The Seymour Panther
The Seymour Panther was given to Jane Seymour, Henry VIII’s third wife, by the king from the treasury of royal beasts. Like his father before him, Henry VIII adopted the panther as a symbol to reinforce his regal lineage.
Hampton Court Palace
Henry VIII continued his father’s commitment to legitimising the Tudor dynasty. One such place that heavily features heraldic symbols is Hampton Court Palace – one of the king’s most famous residences and a place he used for pleasure and celebration.
