Henry VIII reigned for almost four decades and they were formative years for the monarchy, the church and the state. His greatest legacy is perhaps the establishment of the Royal Navy. His long-term failure was dynastic: he left three children, but no grandchildren. This crown piece marks the 500th anniversary of the accession of Henry VIII: its new reverse design was created by John Bergdahl who was inspired by the majestic standing portrait of Henry by Hans Holbein. In the portrait, which is taken from a contemporary work by Holbein, Henry is shown standing before a frieze of roses in the 'antique' style much favoured in the carvings and tapestries of the period. He is presented within a petal-shaped device used frequently to frame portraits on medieval coins. The cipher HR (Henry Rex) is taken from an elaborately engraved gun barrel of the time and all is enclosed within a rope border representing the Royal Navy.
