Centuries of Tradition Celebrated in Five Ounces of Fine Silver
As an iconic feature of the London skyline, the Tower of London has been a symbol of security, strength and royal power for centuries. Tradition runs deep within the fortifications, with the ritual of the Ceremony of the Keys having taken place every night for almost 700 years. It was Edward III who first decreed that the Tower gates should be locked overnight, securing the Tower from intruders.
The ceremonial keys and lantern carried by the Chief Yeoman Warder are depicted on the final coin of our Tower of London series, celebrating an enduring history of tradition. With just 425 five-ounce silver Proof coins available in this Limited Edition Presentation, this highly collectable silver coin reveals a plan of the Tower when placed together with the other coins in the series.
