As one of Britain’s most historic buildings and an internationally renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Tower of London attracts millions of visitors each year.

A special Tower of London mint mark features on this official United Kingdom coin series for the first time, while the edge bears the inscription ‘On into twilight within walls of stone’. Available in an extremely Limited Edition Presentation of 325, this highly collectable coin is presented in an official Royal Mint wooden case, with a booklet exploring the fascinating story of the Yeoman Warders.
