Each coin is housed in a presentation display case and superbly illustrated shipper and comes with a numbered CoA.
The Battle of Hastings marked a pivotal moment in English history. In 1066, William Duke of Normandy’s fleet landed near Hastings where it engaged King Harold’s foot-weary army, recently returned from conflict in the north. A fierce battle raged for much of the day until the persistence of William’s soldiers eventually succeeded in breaking through the English lines. During the mêlée, Harold was struck in the eye by a Norman arrow, a fatal blow depicted in the 11th century Bayeaux Tapestry.
