|The Very Highest Quality Medallions...|
|1066 - 1966 Battle of Hastings Gold Medals by John Pinches|
The shield and coat of arms of Hastings above a longship with grotesque monsters at prow and stern, and waves below.
The legend and inscriptions read:
900th ANNIVERSARY (above the shield).
19 66 (at either side of the shield).
BATTLE OF HASTINGS (on the side of the boat.
The issuers signature appears at the bottom:
A scene from the battle, presumably taken from the Bayeux Tapestry, showing two mounted horsemen (French?), one of whom holds his sword towards a standing soldier, presumably English, wielding a battleaxe. One foot soldier is throwing a spear, another has fallen injured. A number of arrows fly through the air.
The only inscription, in the exergue, on this side reads:
The edge is plain, apart from a serial number, 2 on our featured specimen, and a London hallmark with date letter k, the maker's mark JP.
