The Trafalgar Square 2016 UK £100 coin is the third in the £100 Commemorative fine silver series designed by Royal Mint coin designers Glyn Davies and Laura Clancy. Previous £100 coins have featured their designs for Big Ben and Buckingham Palace.
One of Edwin Landseer’s bronze lions takes centre stage while Nelson’s Column stands in the distance, conveying the square’s sense of space.
Their design was modeled in clay rather than traditional plaster, creating a more fluid, sketch-like appearance.
Commemorative coins are generally treasured for their aesthetic and collectable value, or for their rarity. Collectors appreciate the detailed hand-finished processes and expert skills used to make them.
All coins made by The Royal Mint are legal tender, whether commemorative or circulating. However, only circulating legal tender coins are designed to be spent and traded at businesses and banks.
This coin is a commemorative coin so banks, post offices and shops will not accept them.
