The latest addition to The Royal Mint's bullion range draws inspiration from the iconic architecture and features that shape the nation. Trafalgar Square is the third offering in the series of iconic landmarks of Britain range following The Big Ben coin which was released in 2017 and the Tower Bridge which was released in 2018.
Overlooked by Nelson’s Column and guarded by the four bronze lions at its base, Trafalgar Square is one of London’s most vibrant public spaces.
Renowned for its fountains, architect John Nash designed Trafalgar Square as a cultural space, with the National Gallery housed on the north side. Completed in 1843 at a cost of £47,000, Nelson’s Column honours British naval hero Admiral Horatio Nelson who died defeating the French and Spanish fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Edwin Landseer’s lions were added later in 1867.
Since it was officially named in the 1830s it has remained a living square at the heart of the capital. A firm favourite with tourists, thousands of people visit Trafalgar Square every year. Come 31 December, it’s always packed with revellers welcoming in the New Year, and during times of national celebration, it fills with cheering, flag-waving crowds. Frivolity masks a more serious side – the largest square in the city is a centre of national democracy and the scene of peaceful protest.
Continuing the success of the Landmarks of Britain Collection, we are excited to reveal a bullion coin featuring the latest design by Royal Mint coin designers Glyn Davies and Laura Clancy. This one ounce silver coin presents a new investment opportunity in the range.
The Royal Mint is a national treasure, making beautifully crafted coins and medals for countries all over the world. Over a thousand years of craftsmanship and artistry ensures every piece they strike is a long lasting piece of history.
