UK Tower of London £5 coin – the Infamous Prison

Did you know that famous prisoners of the Tower of London include Anne Boleyn, Guy Fawkes and even Princess Elizabeth, who was later crowned Elizabeth I?

For centuries, the Tower of London played the role of a prison for monarchs and commoners alike. And now this part of the Tower of London’s history is commemorated on this UK £5 coin.

The reverse has been designed by heraldic artist Timothy Noad and is produced in collaboration with Historic Royal Palaces. It also features the exclusive Tower of London mint mark, that can only be found on the coin in the Tower of London series.

The design features the inscription ‘MY LIBERTIE DENIED’. These words are taken from carved ‘graffiti’ in the Beauchamp Tower attributed to Thomas Miagh, a prisoner at the Tower who was held but never charged.

This coin has been struck to Brilliant Uncirculated quality, so you know it will be free from any of the marks or blemishes you would find on coins in your change.

Your coin will arrive in its official presentation pack, designed by The Royal Mint, so you can keep it safe and in pristine condition for generations to come.

What’s more, it’s available to you today for The Royal Mint issue price of JUST £13 (+p&p).

Given the historical significance of this coin, it’s sure to be highly sought-after by serious collectors in years to come. Make sure you don’t miss out by securing yours today.
