CoinGold Two Ounces 2022 British Monarchs - King Henry VII

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues bullion coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The two ounce (2 oz) gold coins are denominated as Two Hundred Pounds (£200).

The coins are legal tender but are not intended for circulation. They are targeted at bullion investors or collectors who appreciate the special editions as pieces of art. The coins are typically "one-year" types usually issued in parallel with smaller denominations with the same reverse designs.

This design is the first release in a Royal Mint series dedicated to the history of British monarchy and the monarchs of England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom, and features Henry VII (1485 - 1509) of the Tudor dynasty. The reverse is based on a coin issued during his reign.

The Royal Mint says about it:
The British Monarchs Collection is a revolutionary new coin series celebrating some of the most iconic kings and queens in British history. Naturally, such a landmark collection deserves a worthy introduction and there is arguably no better place to start than with one of the most famous regal families in British history - the House of Tudor.

Beginning with the founder of the Tudor dynasty, the first coin in The British Monarchs Collection features a classic portrait of Henry VII as it would have appeared on the coinage of the time. As one of the most iconic kings in British history, this design provides a fascinating glimpse into the rarely seen coins of his reign, whilst also presenting a unique prospect for would-be collectors and history aficionados.

United Kingdom / Gold Two Ounces 2022 British Monarchs - King Henry VII - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (her effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait").

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the effigy is the monarch's legend, followed by the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 200 POUNDS · 2022 ·. Translated from Latin: Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith, followed by the value and denomination in English and the year.

Reverse
United Kingdom / Gold Two Ounces 2022 British Monarchs - King Henry VII - reverse photo

Within a beaded border with uneven rim, imitating a hammered coin, the reverse of the coin depicts crowned a portrait of Henry VII of England, facing right.

Around, in Medieval lettering, the inscription HENRIC VII DI GRA REX AGL Z, preceded by a French fleur-de-lis and a mint mark in the shape of a heart topped with a cross.

The legend is in Latin, and means "Henry the Seventh, by the Grace of God, King of England and..."; on some of his coinage it was displayed like this, and on some it continued with "FR" (King of France) and "DNS HIB" (Lord of Ireland).
