Henry VII, the first Tudor monarch, seized the throne in battle in 1485, his succession and subsequent marriage effectively ending the Wars of the Roses. He was succeeded by his son, Henry VIII in 1509 whose children succeeded him in turn: first Edward Vi (ruled 1547 to 1553), Mary I (1553-1558) and lastly Elizabeth II (1558-1603). The coinage of the Tudor dynasty is coloured by life-like profile portraits: a marked change from the hard-to-distinguish facing busts of the medieval kings. Late in Henry VIII's reign the a debasement policy was instituted, making high grade coins from this period and the early years of his son's reign hard to find. An experimental milled issue was made in the 1560s.
