The Mary Rose was a ship built and completed at Portsmouth Harbour in 1511 for Henry VIII and named after his favourite sister, Mary Tudor. It was the pride and joy of England's Royal Navy but in 1545 it met with a tragic end whilst leading an attack against a French invasion fleet in the Solent. For reasons still not concluded, the Mary Rose listed to one side and sank with the loss of all but 35 men. The design features a depiction of the ship by John Bergdahl.

The edge reads: 1511 . YOUR NOBLEST SHIPPE . .
