An official British legal tender coin, struck by the Royal Mint, this beautifully designed £5 honours the Royal Mint’s time domiciled in the Tower of London.

The Tower of London and the Royal Mint

The establishment of the Royal Mint is considered to have taken place in 886AD, when Alfred the Great recaptured London from the Danelaw and began issuing silver pennies bearing his portrait. Centralised control of Britain’s mints was placed in the hands of the mint found in the Tower of London in 1279, and by the reign of Henry VIII (1509-47), little coin production took place outside London. The Royal Mint remained in the Tower of London until 1812, when moved to purpose-built premises on Tower Hill – thus ending a chapter of British history that lasted well over 500 years.

An official tribute…

Struck to the Royal Mint’s rigorous Brilliant Uncirculated standards, this unique £5 coin forms an outstanding tribute to the Royal Mint’s residence in the Tower of London. Measuring 38.61mm, the crown-sized flan is the perfect canvas for the richly symbolic design. Featuring a Norman arched window in the background, along with the exclusive Tower of London mintmark, the reverse depicts Britain’s classic medieval silver penny bearing the inscription ‘Civitas London’ (City of London).
