Landmarks of Britain Series Continues with Tower Bridge
In 2017, The British Royal Mint began a limited-mintage series featuring four coins with contemporary designs depicting major locations within the United Kingdom. The first two 1 oz .999 fine Silver coins released so far have a limited mintage of only 50,000 coins each, making them highly collectible.
This second release in this exciting series is the Tower Bridge. Tower Bridge is a combined bascule (drawbridge) and suspension bridge across the River Thames built between 1886 and 1894. This Silver coin features a striking rendition of the Tower Bridge crafted in an impressionistic style.
The image on each of these coins gives the viewer a clearer look at what can actually be seen on an average day, complete with wispy clouds, which are visible most days in London. These official UK coins make an excellent gift for those who have an interest in Britain’s architectural design, culture or history.
The previously issued Big Ben coin was an immediate success and the upcoming issues of the Buckingham Palace coin and the Trafalgar Square coin are sure to do well. The entire Landmarks of Britain series containing just four coins is a plus as it will be easy to complete at a great premium over the spot price of Silver, especially for bullion coins that have limited mintages.
