In 2009 to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Accession of King Henry VIII the Royal Mint released a Limited Issue Brilliant Uncirculated £5 Five Pound crown coin.
The reverse designed by John Bergdahl, 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 cypher 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.
The obverse features a portrait of Her Majesty The Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS.
