Royal Mint Product Description:

Henry VIII changed the face of British history forever - six wives, two of whom he beheaded, a quarrel with the pope over the annulment of his marriage from his first wife that would remove the power of the Catholic church in England, and the building of a mighty navy. This 2009 coin commemorates 500 years since his accession. Controversial? Certainly, but his influence is undeniable and this coin is a must-have for history enthusiasts. Henry is portrayed standing before a frieze of roses within a petal-shaped device, frequently used to frame portraits on coins during his lifetime.
