'Lucy Churchill's brilliant achievement has brought us as close to the real Anne Boleyn as we shall ever be able to get.'

'Through meticulous research Lucy Churchill has created an authentic replica of the medal of Anne Boleyn, as it would have looked originally. A must for anyone interested in Anne Boleyn!'
A restored copy of the only surviving undisputed contemporary portrait of Anne Boleyn. The lead prototype was modelled in 1534, and is now kept in the British Museum.
Known as 'The Moost Happi' medal, the commemorative portrait was made when Anne Boleyn was believed to be pregnant with a male heir. However she failed to deliver a son, and no further copies of the medal were issued.
Anne Boleyn was beheaded in 1536 at the Tower of London, by order of her husband Henry VIII.
