The Story of the Tower’s Royal Protectors Told in Five Ounces of Fine Gold

For centuries the Yeoman Warders have protected the Tower of London’s unique treasures and varied residents. Originally created by Henry VII from a selection of his elite royal bodyguard, the Yeoman Warders are today formed of distinguished, ex-military personnel – each taking an oath of royal allegiance dating back to 1337. Their story is entwined with the history of London’s famous fortress, once home to The Royal Mint, meaning we are especially proud to present the next coin in our series celebrating the Tower of London.

Every detail of the embroidery on the Yeoman Warder’s State Dress uniform is captured in fine detail, including the rose, thistle, and shamrock that represent England, Scotland and Ireland under the rule of the Tudor crown. Struck in five ounces of fine gold and finished to Proof standard, this impressive limited-edition coin will add a royal touch to any collection, capturing a piece of iconic British history.
