Honouring Britain’s most famous castle

An official British legal tender coin, struck by the Royal Mint, this beautifully designed £5 honours Britain’s most famous castle – the White Tower of the Tower of London.

The White Tower

Built during the reign of William the Conqueror (1066-87) to overawe and terrify Londoners, and deter foreign invaders, the White Tower is a central keep at the Tower of London. The strongest military point of the castle complex, the White Tower has also served as accommodation for the king, a chapel, a prison, an archive and an armoury.

The site of the abdication of Richard II in 1399; the burial place for the ‘Princes in the Tower’, murdered in 1483; the place where Guy Fawkes was tortured in 1605; a key bone of contention between Royalists and Parliamentarians in the 17th century Civil Wars…the White Tower has been central to British history for the best part of the last 1,000 years. It is an iconic emblem of both London and Great Britain, and has been described as ‘the most famous castle keep in the world’.

An official tribute…

Struck to the Royal Mint’s rigorous Brilliant Uncirculated standards, this unique £5 coin forms an outstanding tribute to the White Tower. Measuring 38.61mm, the broad, 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 the mace of the chief Beefeater, which is topped with a silver model of the White Tower.
