Marking 350 years since the great fire ravaged London

A key moment in English history remembered

Perfect for collectors of silver  coins, historians or for anyone with a passion for British culture.

Aaron West, a member of The Royal Mint’s team of expert designers, takes the perspective of one of the Londoners seeking sanctuary on the Thames, to capture the devastating scenes of the time. His inspiration, along with first-hand accounts from popular figures such as Samuel Pepys, and the role played by The Royal Mint’s home at the Tower of London, are all explored in the accompanying booklet. Your coin comes with a Certificate of Authenticity confirming its low mintage, and is presented in a polished black case making it a perfect gift for someone with an interest in this dramatic event, or simply perfect to display and store in your collection.
