Henry V, king of England, introduced this coinage to celebrate his successful claim to the French throne as heir to Charles VI as a result of his victories. Henry V did not live to make good his claim, but his son, Henry VI, was recognized in Paris in 1422 as king of France and England. This coin displays a representation of the Annunciation with the Archangel Gabriel and the Virgin Mary over the shields of France and England, all under the rays of the sun (i.e. god) on the obverse. The reverse displays a cross with the fleur-de-lis of France and the Leopard of England on either side.
