Coin ID: 4439663003

Henry VI (6 December 1421 – 21 May 1471) was King of England from 1422 to 1461  and again from 1470 to 1471, and disputed King of France from 1422 to 1453. The  only child of Henry V, he succeeded to the English throne at the age of nine months  upon his father's death, and succeeded to the French throne on the death of his grandfather Charles VI shortly afterwards.

On the obverse is Madonna and archangel Gabriel behind arms of France and  England. On the reverse is the Latin cross between a fleur de lis and leopard  in polylobe. This amazing coin is well struck and has incredible eye appeal.
