Struck from sterling silver, this official British legal tender coin from the Royal Mint has been issued to celebrate the role of the Tower of London as an infamous prison.

The Tower of London – infamous prison

The final issue in the 2020 Tower of London Collection explores the darker side of the Tower’s history – as an infamous prison. Throughout the centuries, the Tower of London has played the role of a prison for monarchs and commoners alike, but some ‘stays’ were less pleasant than others. Famous prisoners of the Tower include Anne Boleyn, Guy Fawkes and even Princess Elizabeth, who was later crowned Elizabeth I.

Official tribute – stunning in silver!

Struck to Proof standard, this silver £5 forms a fine tribute to a key chapter in the history of the Tower of London. A large coin, the 38.61mm flan is the ideal venue for the richly symbolic design. Featuring a Norman arched window in the background, along with the exclusive Tower of London mintmark, the reverse features the arresting inscription ‘MY LIBERTIE DENIED’. These words are taken from carved ‘graffiti’ attributed to Thomas Miagh, a prisoner at the Tower who was held but never charged.
