Why buy this Silver Proof 2019 5 Pound Great Britain Tower of London Raven Piedfort?
The Tower of London, one of the British capital's most famous landmarks, is steeped in centuries of history. Now, the Royal Mint is celebrating the Tower with a four piece collection of which this Legend of the Ravens is the first. The Tower's Raven-Master keeps six ravens at the site at all times. Legend has it that the kingdom will fall if ever they fly away. This piedfort, which was struck from 56.56 g of .925 sterling silver, is a great way to partake in this series. The proof is part of a mintage of just 1,160 pieces and bears the new Tower of London mint mark.
Stunning Raven Design by Glyn Davies
Jody Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II serves as the obverse design. The reigning British monarch is depicted in right-side profile wearing the same crown that she wore at her coronation, the Royal Diamond Diadem. Three inscriptions, "2019," "5 POUNDS," and "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D" (Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith) encircle her image along the rim.
A majestic raven features in Glyn Davies's reverse design. Shown closeup, the bird has its head turned in a way that gives the holder the opportunity to appreciate every aspect of its beauty. The background features a Tower of London design. The landmark's name is inscribed along the rim.
Impeccable PF70 UC FR with Tower Bridge Label
This piece earned Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) highest grade, Proof 70 (PF70), which means that it is perfect as seen under 5x magnification. It was also labeled First Releases (FR) because it was received for grading within 30 days of the coin's mint release and Ultra Cameo (UC) due to its sharp contrasts between frosted devices and mirrored fields.
