The Tower of London’s Enduring History of Tradition

Echoes of the past are everywhere within the walls of the Tower of London and many traditions have been kept alive from generation to generation to this day. One such tradition is the Ceremony of the Keys, a ritual which has taken place since 1340, during Edward III’s reign. At precisely seven minutes to ten each evening, the Chief Yeoman Warder of the Tower begins to secure the fortress for the night in exactly the same way his predecessors have done for centuries.

The final coin in our Tower of London Collection celebrates the enduring history of tradition, with The Queen’s Keys and lantern at the centre of the design and an edge that bears the inscription ‘on into twilight within walls of stone’. Complete your Tower of London collection with one of only 3,800 silver coins in this Limited Edition Presentation, finished to superior Proof standard and presented in a sleek black Royal Mint case for safekeeping.
