Why purchase this £5 Great Britain 2020 Tower of London The White Tower Piedfort Silver Proof?
The Tower of London Series resumes in 2020 with this The White Tower Silver Piedfort Proof. The series celebrates one of the most iconic and historic landmarks of the British capital. This piece is the first of four to be released in 2020. It celebrates the White Tower, which was built during William the Conqueror's reign. The tower terrified Londoners and invaders alike and served at various times as the king's accommodation, an armory, an archive, a chapel, and a prison cell. The coin was struck from 56.56 g of .925 sterling silver. It is part of a limited edition of just 450 pieces and bears the Tower of London mint mark.
Stunning The White Tower Design by Tim Noad
The obverse features a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. The monarch dons her Royal Diamond Diadem, the crown that she wears to the annual State Opening of Parliament, as well as earrings and a necklace. 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, "2020."
On the reverse, a Yeoman Warder's, or Beefeater's, mace is topped with a model of the White Tower. A Norman arched window serves as the backdrop. "TOWER OF LONDON" is inscribed along the rim.
