2019 Tower of London The Yeoman Warders £5 Crown Silver Proof

2019 Tower of London The Yeoman Warders £5 Silver Proof Boxed
from
£70.00
The Yeomen Warders were formed in 1485 by Henry VII and are the oldest existing military corp in the UK. Their principle role is looking after prisoners and guardian the Crown Jewells in the Tower of London, although they also give guided tours and take care of the ravens. Yeoman Warders are retired members of the British Armed Forces who have served for at least 22 years. As part of a four part series of £5 Crowns released in 2019 honouring the Tower of London, this design celebrating the Warders was the first. The design, by Glyn Davies depicts a Yeoman Warder proudly standing in uniform, holding a ceremonial axe. Imposed around the man is part of the architectural plan of the Tower of London and Mint Street. When this silver proof coin is viewed together with the other three coins in the series, the architectural plans come together to show a complete map of the Tower. An inscription reading ‘TOWER OF LONDON’ is written below the design, while another inscription around the edge of the 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 has been used on UK coinage since 2015. This coin is one of 4,000 in this silver proof format, and comes in its original packaging from The Royal Mint. It is struck in .925 sterling silver and weighs 28.28 grams with a diameter of 38.61 milimetres.
