The Tower of London has been a symbol of royal power for nearly 1,000 years. During that time the tower has been used as a prison, jewel house, mint and menagerie. It’s been home to kings and queens, thieves and traitors and lions and bears.
But it’s the Ravens that have been a constant presence in the tower and legend has it that if they ever leave, the kingdom will fall…
And in tribute to these guardians of the Tower, The Royal Mint has issued a brand new UK £5 coin.
A minting first
Designed by Glyn Davies, the unique design features a Raven with a bird’s-eye view of the tower in the background and if you look closely at the reverse design, you will see a special Tower of London mint mark.
This is the first coin in a brand new series that celebrates the history of the Tower of London, Britain’s most iconic attractions and will eventually include coins depicting the following:
- The Yeoman Warders
- The Ceremony of the Keys
- The Crown Jewels
