999.9 gold Legend of the Ravens 1/4oz gold proof coin from The Royal Mint's Tower of London collection. These coins from the UK's national mint were created in partnership with Historic Royal Palaces and celebrate the mysteries of the famous London fortress and prison. This premium 24-carat gold edition was issued in 2019 and features a fascinating raven design by Clyn Davies, the bird set against an architectural plant of the Tower. There are numerous contradicting and sometimes magical stories behind the presence of ravens at the Tower of London. Some argue that it was Charles II who heeded warnings that 'the Tower will fall and you will lose your kingdom' if ravens were absent. Today, the ravens are a tourist attraction for visitors to London, to marvel at the impressive birds as well as revel in the myths that surround them. The edge of this £25 coin reads 'ON INTO TWILIGHT WITHIN WALLS OF STONE' which is taken from a poem by Samuel Rogers. On the obverse is Jody Clark's official portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, which was used on UK coinage from 2015 to 2022. This coin is one of just 800 issued in this limited edition presentation. It measures 22.00 millimetres in diameter and weighs in at 7.80 grams. This is a pre-owned coin offered in like-new condition. It comes in its original presentation packing from The Royal Mint, complete with a printed card box, an information booklet, a glossy wooden display case and a numbered certificate of authenticity. The Legend of the Ravens coin itself is offered within its original screw-top capsule.
