An important opportunity to secure a groundbreaking ‘profile portrait’ coin of the first monarch from the House of Tudor, this King Henry VII Silver Groat is a must-have.

One of the key figures of British history, Henry Tudor spent 14 years in exile during the reign of King Edward IV, who had taken the throne from Henry’s uncle, King Henry VI. The last king to win the throne in battle, Henry defeated Edward’s brother, King Richard III, at Bosworth Field in 1485 to end the War of the Roses. Henry’s second son – the iconic King Henry VIII – succeeded his father in 1509.

Struck very late in the reign of the first Tudor king – from 1504 to 1509 – this key type is most notable for the portrait on the obverse. Rather than the stylised, representational portrayal of the monarch that had been employed upon English coinage in previous centuries, Henry oversaw the introduction of a lifelike profile portrait.

Highly sought after in any condition, we have just the single coin available – graded Fine, with an impressive portrait of the king. Click add to cart now!
