    This medal is so exciting because it is a contemporary piece and survived the wasteful destruction of Henry V111 after his second queens death, the medal also resembles many of the portraits done of Anne with the sitters long oval face and high cheekbones, the medal struck in her honour was also another sign of the kings deep love and reverence for her.
