King Henry VIII was one of the most illustrious and influential monarchs in British history.

He ascended to the English throne in 1509, and now this stunning new coin from the British Virgin Islands honours him on the 500th Anniversary of his Accession.

The coin is designed in the style of a vintage coin from his reign, complete with the famous 1545 portrait that is the standard by which the king is recognized today.

In the surround and based on an original coin of the time is a phase meaning ‘By the Grace of God King of England France Lord of Ireland’. This is a coin that was 500 years in the making – but only a limited number will be struck, so please order now to avoid disappointment.

Pobjoy Mint was established in the middle ages in Great Britain and today makes superior coins for special commemoratives and for governments.

Pobjoy has reputation as top coin designer and coin dieing techniques and for top quality packaging.

 

The Pobjoy family has been associated with fine metalwork since the Middle Ages. The Company was recently granted permission to use the family Coat of Arms in which the Medieval Popinjay is the central motif. The Popinjay was a painted wooden parrot used in archery contests in the 14th century and the name Pobjoy is derived from this. The Latin motto 'OCULO CERTO' means 'with an unerring eye' and applies equally to the ancestor's prowess as a marksman, as to the Company's reputation for the high quality and precision of its products. Over the past three centuries, the Company has been involved in many diverse fields, but they have always been involved in metal, both base and precious. During World War II Pobjoy Aero Engineering was involved in the manufacturing of the famous Spitfire wings. The Company is now the largest private Mint in Europe.
