The Ancient Ceremony of the Keys

From the Crown Jewels to the iconic ‘Beefeaters’, the Tower of London gives millions of visitors each year the chance to experience living history. However, not all will witness the intriguing Ceremony of the Keys, the ceremonial locking of the Tower gates which takes place every night at exactly seven minutes to ten.

This fascinating tradition is the subject of the final release in our Tower of London Collection and two vital parts of the ceremony, the keys and lamp, feature in the design. Struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard – a finer finish than circulating coins – this coin is presented in a fold-out wallet where you’ll discover more about the history behind this centuries-old tradition.
