Battle of Hastings 50p 'Britain in Coins' Pack

1066. The one date every school child knows. The “beginning” of English history and the very last time an English army is defeated on its own soil.

2016 marked the 950th Anniversary of The Battle of Hastings and to commemorate this pivotal moment in history, The Royal Mint issued a brand new commemorative 50p coin.

The reverse of the coin depicts the fate of King Harold at the hands of William The Conqueror, along with the famous date 1066 - when the battle took place. 

The Battle of Hastings 50p 'Britain in Coins' Pack features the 50p in the centre while the expertly illustrated pack brings history to life in a way that is specifically designed for Junior Change Checkers and includes facts about the historical event.

Priced at just £4.99 (+p&p) the Battle of Hastings 50p 'Britain in Coins' Pack is the ideal way to get your collection started!
