Centuries of Royal Tradition in Fine Gold
Since it was commissioned by William the Conqueror, the Tower of London has played a vital role in the reign of countless British monarchs through the ages, each bringing their own story to its varied history. It was Edward III that introduced one of the Tower’s longest lasting traditions, the Ceremony of the Keys, which is carried out every night to this day.
The Chief Yeoman Warder performs the ritual of locking the Tower for the night, carrying a lantern and The Queen’s Keys, and these vital items are the focus of the last coin in our Tower of London series. Struck in fine gold, this Proof coin pays tribute to a centuries-old ceremony and joins the three other coins in the collection to create a unique bird’s-eye view of the Tower’s walls.
