The latest addition to our bullion range draws inspiration from the iconic architecture and features that shape the nation. Big Ben is the first offering in the series of iconic landmarks of Britain range.

The coin depicts the Elizabeth Tower that dominates the skyline at the northern end of the Houses of Parliament. It is said to be one of London’s most iconic and recognisable landmarks. But while the tourists might refer to the clock as ‘Big Ben’, it is actually the great bell inside that bears the famous nickname, possibly used in honour of Sir Benjamin Hall, First Commissioner for Works 1855-1858. The original bell was cast in 1856 but quickly cracked. It was recast in 1858, but was to suffer the same fate. Finally a lighter hammer was used to strike a different section of the still damaged bell, giving us the distinctive sound, a musical note E, we know today. It is a sound that has become an unmistakable thread in the very fabric of British life.
