For the very first time The Royal Mint has chosen to feature the Tower of London on a series of UK coins. Starting with The Legend of the Ravens, the collection continues with coins featuring The Crown Jewels, Yeoman Warders and The Ceremony of the Keys. Together the coins tell the story of this mighty stone fortress and the ancient ceremonies that still take place within these walls.
The background of the reverse design of each coin represents part of the map of the Tower of London; when put together, the four coins make up the whole map.
Each coin was sold separately by the Royal Mint. This series combines the four separate gold proof versions - each coin in its own presentation box packaging - with a common collection holder.
