Why buy this Silver Proof 2020 £5 Great Britain Tower of London The White Tower?
This The White Tower is the first of four 2020 issues of the Tower of London Series. The series continues to honor one of London's most famous and historic landmarks. Built during William the Conqueror's reign, the tower has served as an archive, a chapel, a prison, an armory, and even accommodation for the king. This Piedfort was struck from 56.56 g of sterling silver. It is part of a limited mintage of 2,500 pieces and bears the mint mark of the Tower of London.
Exquisite The White Tower Design
Queen Elizabeth II dominates the obverse. The portrait, which was designed by Jody Clark, shows the monarch wearing earrings and the crown that she wears to the State Opening of Parliament, the Royal Diamond Diadem. Encircling her are rim inscriptions that note her name and abbreviated Latin title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D," the coin's face value, "5 POUNDS," and the date, "2020."
On the reverse, a Beefeater's mace stands against a backdrop of a Norman arched window. Atop the mace stands a silver model of the White Tower, complete with the Union Jack flying high. The name of the structure honored, "TOWER OF LONDON," is inscribed along the rim.
