£100 coin for £100 - Buckingham Palace, an icon and a home

The nation’s palace

In 2015, we carry on the tradition of celebrating architectural icons with a special place in British life. This £100 silver commemorative coin for £100 captures the timeless majesty of Buckingham Palace, its symbolism and standing. More than a monument, it’s a family home and the nation’s palace. Struck in two full ounces of 999 fine silver, this impressive coin is the perfect choice to continue the series – add it to your collection or give to someone special as a thoughtful good luck gift.

About the coin

Over time, Buckingham Palace has been extensively remodelled and transformed. Steeped in history and grandeur it may be, but behind each new wing, arch and elegant facade, it’s still a family home. As royalty’s relationship with the British people has evolved, a new accessibility has taken root. In 1993, The Queen announced that the doors would open to the public for the very first time in its history - truly the nation’s palace. 

This wonderful coin, containing two full ounces of fine silver, is a fitting tribute to a genuine global icon, celebrating the very essence of Britishness itself in the eyes of the tourists who flock to visit this magnificent architectural marvel. Each coin is beautifully presented complete with a fascinating history of the palace. This magnificent coin celebrates all things British and should take its place as the centrepiece of your coin collection, or will make a wonderful gift for any proud royalist or committed Anglophile.

George III bought Buckingham House in 1761 for his wife, Queen Charlotte, and work began the following year to remodel it. Later, George IV would transform the house into a palace. Architect John Nash set about realising the King’s ambitious plans, but spiralling costs eventually cost him his job and George never moved in.

Queen Victoria became the first sovereign to take up residence in 1837. However, when she married Prince Albert three years later, the shortcomings of her new home were highlighted. The Marble Arch was moved and nurseries and guest bedrooms were added. Work continued and the palace was finally finished just before the outbreak of The First World War in 1914.

It is only fitting that Glyn Davies and Laura Clancy’s original portrayal of this iconic building has been chosen to adorn this extra special silver coin - only the second in the series. Add each new edition and watch your collection grow.
