A Living Piece of History Struck in 22 Carat Gold
An imposing statement of royal power commissioned by William the Conqueror, almost 1,000 years later the Tower of London still stands on the banks of the Thames. Through its long history, it has been a prison, a jewel house, a mint and a menagerie. Within its walls the past is all around you. Next to the Wakefield Tower a living piece of history stares back at you in the form of the ravens. Legend has it that if they leave, the kingdom will fall.
For the very first time The Royal Mint is excited to celebrate the Tower of London on a series of UK coins. The series starts with a brand-new, original design that brings the legend of the ravens to life. Struck in 22 carat gold and finished to Proof standard, this beautiful coin sets the tone for an eagerly anticipated collection.
