Transport Coins | The Royal Mint

As symbols of influence, of military might and political power, British ships have graced Britain’s coins for centuries: the Mary Rose is the latest in that long line.

Britain: island nation, her power and might so often symbolised by her navy. Military and political influence has long featured on Britain’s coinage – Britannia, queen of the seas, was personified on the coins of Charles II as the third Anglo-Dutch war began, while the pre-decimalisation halfpenny coin bore a ship said to represent Sir Francis Drake’s Golden Hind. Continuing that tradition is this stunning Mary Rose coin, proudly portraying the heavyweight flagship of Henry VIII in celebration of the 500th anniversary of the maiden voyage of the impressive, but ultimately ill-fated, Mary Rose.
