Mary Rose £2 Coins mark the 500th Anniversary of the maiden voyage of the Mary Rose.
Artist John Bergdahl FRBS created a design that shows the Mary Rose in her prime, complete with the all-important banners and streamers that made Tudor vessels so beautiful and instantly recognisable.
The carrack Tudor warship profile is clearly shown, with the high ‘castles’ fore and aft, and an impressive number of heavy guns.
Looking at the stern of the ship, it’s easy to see the gradually narrowing width of the decks, designed to make the ship more stable and to make boarding more difficult. The inscription around the edge of the coin reads: YOUR NOBLEST SHIPPE 1511.
