Commemorating the world’s first underground railway

London Underground ‘Roundel’ Design

On 10 January 1863 the London Underground opened, which was an engineering triumph and a world first.

Reflecting the importance of this150th anniversary not one but two new coins have been developed with Transport for London and the London Transport Museum. The ‘Roundel’ coin shows the famous Underground logo in a design inspired by Man Ray. Struck in 22 carat yellow gold with a rose gold outer edge, it is presented in a smart display case with a full-colour booklet full of stories of the Underground.

About the coin

Leading UK artists designed the 150th anniversary coins which you can also buy as a set of two Gold Proof coins in a very low limited edition of just 150 worldwide.

Edwina Ellis, creator of this ‘Roundel’ coin, is a pioneering printmaker and former ‘Art on the Underground’ artist. Her design, featuring the famous logo which first appeared in 1908, carries the edge inscription MIND THE GAP and uses lettering in the unique Johnston typeface used for London Underground signage.

The companion ‘Train’ coin was designed by the internationally-acclaimed duo Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, best known for the design of the London 2012 Olympic Torch. It shows a dynamic image of a 1967 Victoria line Tube train and uses textures and perspectives to reflect the light and create a sense of movement.

It is rare for two circulating coins to have the same theme. Also available in limited edition Silver Proof and Silver Piedfort Proof sets and individual coins as well as the Brilliant Uncirculated two-coin set, they are sure to delight coin collectors, Londoners and transport enthusiasts alike.
