The only fact many people seem to recall from their school days is that the Battle of Hastings took place in 1066. Ask the same people what it was about and they will very likely look blank. I am also looking it up online as I have no idea.

Fresh from a Wikipedia page I am still not sure, but the coin seems to show the death of King Harold which led to a victory for the Normans.

I am not sure why this was a good thing or what may have happened if the Normans had lost, but it must be quite important as The Royal Mint could not wait 50 more years to release this coin – so it marks the 950th anniversary in 2015.
