The popular Tower of London Collection began in 2019 and continues in 2020 with four new coins celebrating the iconic palace and fortress. The focus of the second coin in this year’s collection is the Royal Menagerie, recalling a time when monkeys, elephants and even a polar bear roamed the Tower. Artist Timothy Noad has created a heraldic-inspired design featuring lions – once inhabitants of the Tower – surrounded by a Norman arched window which unifies this year’s collection. This popular series has been struck on £5 coins, traditionally called crowns and used to commemorate important royal events. The second coin is available now, struck in gold, silver and silver Piedfort editions, finished to our finest Proof standard and presented in a Royal Mint case. The coin is also available as a Brilliant Uncirculated edition housed in a foldout wallet. Each edition comes with tales from the Tower – London’s first zoo.

Key Selling Point:

• The second coin in the 2020 collection

• With a new design by heraldic artist Timothy Noad

• Features the exclusive Tower of London mint mark

• Produced in collaboration with Historic Royal Palaces
