Priceless Royal Regalia
Commissioned by William the Conqueror, the Tower of London dominated the capital’s skyline, a warning to any who dared oppose him. Part fortress, part political statement, it served as a symbol of royal power and almost 1,000 years later still stands on the banks of the Thames. Attracting visitors from all over the world, most have just one thing on their minds when they visit – seeing the Crown Jewels.
More than glittering artefacts, the royal regalia confer authority on the monarch and are still worn on important state occasions; they are a living piece of history. As we continue our series of Tower of London coins, this priceless collection takes centre stage, presented here as a silver Proof piedfort coin, twice the weight of the standard £5 coin, finished to finest Proof standard.
