Why buy this £5 Great Britain 2019 Tower of London - The Keys Silver Proof?
For over seven centuries, Yeoman Warders, better known as Beefeaters, have locked up the Tower of London in a carefully choreographed ceremony.

The coin is part of an issue of just 4,000 pieces. Struck from 28.28 g of .925 sterling silver, this piece bears a unique Tower of London mint mark that is limited to this series.
Striking Keys Design by Glyn Davies
On the obverse is a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. The monarch is depicted wearing earrings and her Royal Diamond Diadem, which she wears to the annual State Opening of Parliament. Her name and abbreviated Latin title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D" (Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith) are inscribed along the rim, as are the coin's face value, "5 POUNDS," and date, "2019."
On the reverse are the famous keys that are used to lock up the Tower of London at seven minutes to ten every night. They are alongside a lantern. In the background is part of the layout of the Tower of London. When this coin is placed alongside the other coins in this set, the layout can be seen in full. "TOWER OF LONDON" is inscribed along the rim. This face was designed by Glyn Davies.
