Honouring Britain’s most famous castle
Struck from a gigantic 39.94 grams of 22-carat gold, this stunning Proof £5 coin has been issued to celebrate the rich history and great beauty of 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’.
Official tribute – stunning in gold!
Struck to the height of Proof quality, this unique gold £5 coin is the most prestigious tribute to the White Tower issued by Britain’s Royal Mint. 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 backdrop, united with a Tower of London mintmark, the design depicts the mace of the chief Beefeater, which is topped with a silver model of the White Tower.
