Honouring Britain’s most famous castle

Struck from 56.56 grams of sparkling sterling silver, this ‘double weight’ Piedfort 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’.

‘Double Weight’ Piedfort!

A magnificent tribute to the White Tower, this one-year-only £5 is a ‘Piedfort’ – meaning ‘heavy weight’. Struck to the Royal Mint’s Proof quality, the diameter of the coin is the same as a standard silver £5, but the flan is DOUBLE the weight and much thicker. A fine work of numismatic craftsmanship, the reverse depicts the chief Beefeater’s mace, which is topped with a silver model of the White Tower. A Norman arched window lies in the backdrop, along with a Tower of London mintmark.
