Description

Following on from the successful 2008 History of Great Britain collection, a further twelve coins were issued. Each coin continues to trace the rich and colourful history of the British Isles. The collection has been inspired by a 'schoolboy history' of the major events and people that have shaped the British Isles as they are today.

The Battle of Agincourt was an English victory in the Hundred Years' War. It took place on 25 October 1415 (Saint Crispin's Day) near Azincourt, in northern France. The unexpected English victory against the numerically superior French army boosted English morale and prestige, crippled France, and started a new period of English dominance in the war that would last for 14 years until France defeated England in the Siege of Orléans in 1429.
