The coin's design

This antiqued silver 999/1000 coin shows King Harold standing tall and proud in resplendent full-colour military regalia. He brandishes a red shield emblazoned with the Lion of England. In the engraved background, English and Norman soldiers fight in the fierce battle for the claim to the throne. 

The coin itself has been given an antique finish, lending it a sense of age and history.   

Packaging

The coin is housed in a themed outer box featuring a black line art illustration of the battle imposed over an antiqued paper texture. 

The Battle of Hastings

The death of Edward the Confessor on 5 January 1066 created a power struggle as he died without an heir. Although Harold Godwinson was crowned king shortly after, his claim to the throne was disputed by several assailants - most notably, William, Duke of Normandy.

On 14 October 1066, William and Harold met in a battle that would alter the face of English history forever.
