I am sure you are right, but didn't Henry VIII use it as one of his personal symbols?

Also, there were some French and Israeli troops in Egypt along with the British.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Portcullis-.jpg

Symbols: The Portcullis.


"The portcullis was the heraldic badge of the House of Beaufort.

The first Tudor king, Henry VII (1457-1509), was of Beaufort descent.

He adapted both the portcullis and the Tudor Rose as the Tudor badge".

Here is a coin from Lithuania, the 2019 piece in the Ethnographic Regions series.

You see the CoA of Žemaitija (Samogitia), including a bear with a chain around the neck.

Can't see the chain? That can be fixed.  ;D

Then we have the unicorn, representing Scotland, on this British bullion piece. Silver 2 oz (face value £5, I think).
