While King Henry VIII used the unicorn as a heraldic beast for his third wife, Jane Seymour, modern observers of British heraldry know of its post-Tudor history. The unicorn has been a prominent element in the Royal Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom since the 1603 union of England and Scotland. In the coat of arms, the unicorn is one of the supporters, along with the lion. The unicorn represents Scotland, while the lion represents England. This symbolizes the unity of the two kingdoms under one monarch.
King Charles III is on the obverse of the 2024 Proof British Silver Tudor Beasts The Seymour Unicorn Coin. His Majesty is captured here in a design created in late 2022 by Martin Jennings. The first-ever bust of Charles III, this portrait offers a left-profile relief and lacks a crown.
The Seymour Unicorn is on the reverse of 2024 5 oz Proof Silver Tudor Beasts The Seymour Unicorn Coin. Like the other Tudor Beasts, this creature was captured in statue form along Moat Bridge into Hampton Court. Henry VIII gifted this heraldic beast to his third wife, Jane Seymour, who was the only wife of the Tudor monarch to give birth to a surviving son.
