King Harold Godwinson of Wessex had taken the English throne after King Edward “the Confessor” died leaving no children. William of Normandy also claimed rights to the crown and stormed the Sussex coast defeating the English in a bloody battle that left thousands dead.

The English fought a good fight which lasted most of the day, despite their opponents’ superior cavalry. In the end, the Norman invaders gained the winning advantage by adopting the tactic of feigning retreat and then turning on their pursuers. Harold was killed in the engagement and, after further skirmishes, William was crowned king on Christmas Day 1066.

This impressive coin features a coloured illustration of William the Conqueror, leader of the victorious invading Norman army. He stands against an antique, engraved background featuring infantry and cavalry engaged in battle. The coin case also houses the uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

The themed outer box features a black line art illustration of the battle imposed over an antiqued paper texture. Inside an antique-looking timber box opens to reveal the coin nestled in its black velvet interior with the uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
