The History of The Royal Arms

The Royal Arms has a fascinating history that goes back to medieval times. Initially, it was a simple shield with three lions representing England. As England’s influence expanded, the shield evolved to include symbols from Wales and Scotland.

It became a prominent symbol of the monarchy’s authority and the country’s unity. It featured in royal palaces, official documents, and ceremonial regalia. The coins with the Royal Arms represented these historical and symbolic connections tangibly.

These coins were crucial in commemorating significant events in British history. They were used to celebrate royal weddings, jubilees, and other important occasions, becoming lasting reminders of national pride and identity.
