Crowning Glory

With the restoration of the monarchy in 1660, Charles II demanded a glittering coronation worthy of the institution. The Crown Jewels, melted down by the parliamentarians, were recast anew for the ceremony. Kept safe behind the Tower’s stone walls through the passing centuries, these powerful symbols of monarchy are still in use today.

For the second coin in our series celebrating the Tower of London, we capture the majesty of this priceless collection of ceremonial treasures in one ounce of fine gold. As you build your collection of Tower coins, side by side they tell the story of this mighty stone fortress that resides at the heart of British history.
