In 1066, one of the most significant pages in English history was written. At daybreak on October 14th that year, thousands of men faced each other across the land that is now known as Battle, a few miles from Hastings. To the south; William, Duke of Normandy, and his Norman army that included a strong cavalry and the power of the crossbow. To the north, King Harold of England and his mighty infantry, equipped with fearsome battle axes. By some accounts they were evenly matched, by others, a vastly larger Norman force faced a weary English army. The fight would be long and hard, the strong English shield repelled attack after attack until the Normans finally gained the upper hand. But then, the English King fell and Harold's army fled the battlefield, leaving the conquering William to claim England and the crown, as his own.

In 2016 we remember the 950th anniversary of The Battle of Hastings - the date that made history. Mark the occasion, and note the day that the nation's time line was altered forever with this magnificent 50 pence coin. The reverse by John Bergdahl features the famous fate of King Harold, while the obverse features the fifth definitive coinage portrait of Her Majesty The Queen.
