2020 Tower of London The Infamous Prison Piedfort £5 Silver Proof Boxed

Buy a 2020 Tower Of London The Infamous Prison Five Pound Crown Piedfort Silver Proof Coin

A silver piedfort addition to the popular Tower of London series: a collaboration between The Royal Mint and Historic Royal Palaces. The 2020 collection celebrates some of the various functions the ancient fortress has served down the centuries, including the Tower’s ‘infamous’ role as a prison. While royal and noble prisoners might be kept in relative comfort - deprived only of their liberty - unlucky prisoners were tortured. Timothy Noad's reverse for this Five Pound coin is a subtle evocation of the Tower's chilling past. Its inspired by anonymous graffiti found in the Bell Tower which reads ‘BY TORTURE STRANGE MY TROUTH WAS TRIED YET OF MY LIBERTIE DENIED’. This is set against a Norman-style window: a design feature that unifies the coins in the 2020 Tower of London collection. This double-weight, double-thickness piedfort coin is struck in 56.56 grams of .925 sterling silver. It’s the scarcest of this type with just 400 offered in this presentation. You’ll receive your Infamous Prison coin in its original packaging and capsule with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
