1066 – the date that made history

Come the 14 October, the famous battleground near Hastings in Sussex will ring out with war cries and the clash of steel once more. Accountants become archers and clerks become cavalrymen as thousands of re-enactors gather to stage The Battle of Hastings, marking the date that made history exactly 950 years ago. This landmark moment in England’s story is replayed again and again, keeping a special part of our history and heritage alive, delighting and educating each new generation.

Artist John Bergdahl’s feel for the historical is evident once more as he looks to the Bayeux Tapestry for inspiration. This stunning coin is accompanied by a fascinating booklet revealing more about the political situation in England in 1066 and the rival claimants to the throne vying for power after the death of Edward the Confessor. Inspire learning by giving a gift they can enjoy for a lifetime.

Andrew Mills, The Royal Mint’s Director of Circulating Coin, said:

1066 is arguably one of the most famous dates in English history. As we head towards the 950th anniversary of The Battle of Hastings on 14 October, it is apt that The Royal Mint should now be releasing these special 50p coins into circulation to commemorate this significant historical event.

It is entirely possible that coins struck by The Royal Mint will have made their way onto the battlefield itself, in the purses of King Harold’s soldiers – incredible for the team here to think about, since we are still making the monarch’s coinage today, all those centuries later!
