Designed by Royal Mint engravers Laura Clancy and Glyn Davies, each iconic attraction is viewed as though through the eyes of a visitor, seen through passing crowds or rain showers, giving the coins the feel of an impressionist painting, enhanced by the trichromatic colour-printing.
ELIZABETH TOWER/BIG BEN
The four coins feature some of the most iconic locations in Britain;
ELIZABETH TOWER: The name of the tower holding the worlds most famous clock and attached to the stunning Houses of Parliament building.
BUCKINGHAM PALACE: The residence of Queen Elizabeth II and the woman whose portrait adorns the obverse of literally billions of coins.
TOWER BRIDGE: Simply beautiful bascule/suspension bridge celebrating its 120th anniversary this year.
TRAFALGAR SQUARE: Commemorative open space celebrating one of the worlds greatest naval commanders, Lord Nelson.
Offered in a four coin set and not individually, the coins are presented in a good-looking case complemented by a booklet telling the story behind each subject. Each coin is struck in one standard ounce of sterling silver and is limited to just 3,500 sets. Price is an not inconsiderable £450.00.
