Corfe Castle Regicide

This 8 inch diameter screen printed plate marks the one-thousandth anniversary of the Martyrdom of Edward, king of England at Corfe Castle on 18 March 978.  Which, on my fingers, adds up to it been made in 1978.  It comes with a certificate signed by the chairman of the Saint Edward Millennium committee, and is numbered 704 out of 1000 made.

Here's the Wikipedia entry for Edward the Martyr
