New Landmarks of Britain Series Brings London to Life
APMEX, Inc., a leading Precious Metals e-retailer based in Oklahoma City, is proud to introduce the newest series from The Royal Mint celebrating timeless British icons. This Landmarks of Britain Series will take customers on a journey through downtown London by offering unique views of instantly recognizable sites.
The first release in this APMEXclusive®* series features Elizabeth Tower, home to Big Ben, the famous bell that has kept time for Londoners since 1859. With the tower depicted as slightly obscured by the environment, this .999 fine Silver coin provides a new perspective on a classic visual.
Instead of the straight-on shots of Big Ben we are used to seeing in movies and television, The Royal Mint designers chose to depict the tower as a tourist might view it – from the street below. This unexpected twist, and a mintage of just 50,000 coins, makes this Silver bullion coin appealing to both investors and collectors who want to own a piece of old London town.
“We are excited to offer this limited-mintage coin to our customers,” APMEX COO Mark Yoshimura said. “As The Royal Mint has done with the widely-popular Queen’s Beasts Series, this striking new series will offer a fresh take on images recognized all around the world. On top of that, the .999 fine Silver content only means more opportunity for investors who have come to trust The Royal Mint name for high-quality products.”
The specifications of the 1 oz Silver Big Ben coin mimic the mint’s popular Silver Britannia, measuring 38.61 mm in diameter, containing .999 fine Silver and listing a face value of £2.The obverse features the fifth effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, created by Royal Mint designer Jody Clark.
Upcoming coins in the series will feature Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square, all of which are classic British landmarks where tourists flock and locals regularly gather. Add these remarkable coins to your collection today and keep up with the entire series from The Royal Mint, exclusively at APMEX*.
