The Legend of the Ravens Retold in Five Ounces of Fine Gold

It is said that if the ravens ever leave the Tower of London, the kingdom will fall. Some attribute their continued to presence to Charles II who ordered their destruction, only to change his mind when he learned of this ancient foretelling. True or not, the legend is rigorously upheld – six birds reside at the Tower of London at all times.

In association with Historic Royal Palaces, The Royal Mint is excited to present the first coin in a brand-new series celebrating the Tower of London. As one of Britain’s most iconic attractions, it draws millions of visitors every year. Housed next to the Wakefield Tower are its most famous residents, the ravens, which grace the first coin in the series. Struck in five ounces of fine gold and finished to Proof standard, this magnificent coin captures a piece of living history.
