Royal Mint four coin Landmarks of Britain silver bullion coin debuts its second, Tower Bridge

The Royal Mint debuted the first of a four-coin limited run silver bullion coin series last year called Landmarks of Britain. Based on a proof set released back in mid 2014, each coin features a street-level perspective view of a famous London landmark. Designed by Laura Clancy and Glyn Davies, they’re a bit different from the usual look and are welcome for that alone.

Only a single variant is available – a one ounce 0.9999 silver coin, and the mintage is set at 50,000 pieces. Coins to follow depict Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square. The obverse is the newer style patterned background one that has replaced the older crinckled finish (you can see the difference in the image below), but in other respects is a standard Royal Mint effort.

We liked the first one of these and we like this one as well. The subject matter is unusual for a silver bullion coin. It’s in the mix price-wise – not the cheapest or the dearest – but decent value in light of the mintage and issuer. Available from Royal Mint Bullion directly, from APMEX in the US, and LPM in Asia, amongst others, it shouldn’t be too difficult to pick one up, or more should the desire arise. Available to order now.
