Struck from a gigantic 39.94 grams of 22-carat gold, this stunning Proof £5 coin has been issued to honour 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 domiciled 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.

Official tribute – stunning in gold!

Struck to the height of Proof quality, this unique gold £5 coin is a truly prestigious tribute to this key chapter in British history. Measuring an imposing 38.61mm in diameter, the flan forms the consummate canvas for the eye-catching 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).
