Battle of Hastings

This year, 950 years after the Battle of Hastings, The Royal Mint® captures the intensity of the battle with a stunning design for the Battle of Hastings coin. Esteemed artist John Bergdahl took the Bayeux Tapestry as his inspiration, a tapestry that famously captures the complexity of the battle in great detail. In the centre of the design for this coin, Harold is depicted in the famous scene that so many of us remember from our history lessons – when he is shot through the eye with an arrow in the heat of battle, more arrows protruding from his shield as he faces the onslaught of his opponent’s cavalry.
