Secure the new £5 proof coin issued to commemorate the Battle of Hastings.

This October we will commemorate the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings. History remembers William as ‘the Conqueror’ and his reign marked the beginnings of the monarchy that we know today.

To mark this moment in time, a brand new Proof £5 coin has been issued.

Proof is the highest grade of finish found on collectable coins.  Proof coins are produced using a specially prepared die which strikes the coin several times to create a high quality frosted and mirrored finish and enhanced definition.

The reverse design depicts an intricately engraved Normand and Saxon soldier enhanced with gold ink.

Strictly limited to just 4,950 worldwide, your coin will arrive presented in a small leatherette box with Certificate of Authenticity.

Secure yours today.
