White Horse of Hanover
The White Horse of Hanover is the nineth release in the collection.
George of Hanover became George I following the death of Queen Anne.
The White Horse of Hanover coin depicts the ninth herladic statue present during the Queen's coronation. The Arms of George I are carried by the Horse of Hanover, representing his sovereignty as King of Great Britain, France and Ireland across three quarters with the last quarter bearing the Arms of Hanover. This last quarter is then divided into three bearing the two leopards of Brunswick, the blue lion one Lüneburg and the White Horse of Hanover.
Royal Mint product designer Jody Clark has created another stunning design of this majestic horse at full gallop.
Some say Saxon hordes brought the White Horse to the country and is a familiar symbol in Kent. The difference between the Kentish White Horse and the White Horse of Hanover is the Kentish Horse is usually depicted as rearing or rampant wehereas the White Horse of Hanover is displayed at full gallop.
History of The Queen’s Beasts
At the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, ten heraldic beasts stood guard. The Queen’s Beasts, sculpted by James Woodford RA for the coronation ceremony held in Westminster Abbey in 1953, stand six feet tall. The heraldic creatures symbolised the various strands of royal ancestry brought together in a young woman about to be crowned queen. Each proud beast, used as an heraldic badge by generations that went before her, was inspired by the King’s Beasts of Henry VIII that still line the bridge over the moat at his Hampton Court Palace.
Today, The Queen’s Beasts can be found at the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec, while Portland stone replicas, also carved by James Woodford, watch over Kew Gardens in the United Kingdom. But these mythical, ancient creatures – lions, griffin, falcon, bull, yale, greyhound, dragon, unicorn and horse.
