2019 Great Britain £5 Gold Tower of London Crown Jewels NGC PF70UC One of First 35 Struck
Explore the Tower of London From the Comfort of Your Living Room
When Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II was crowned on 2 June 1953 in Westminster Abbey, millions of people in the United Kingdom gathered to witness the extraordinary day, crowding around television sets that had sold in unprecedented numbers in the weeks beforehand. The 1953 coronation was an unforgettable event with the high point being the moment when the Archbishop of Canterbury gently placed Saint Edward’s Crown on The Queen’s head.
Weighing nearly 5 pounds, Saint Edward’s Crown is not only the centerpiece of the coronation regalia, but the most recognizable piece of the United Kingdom’s famous Crown Jewels, a collection of more than 140 ceremonial objects owned by the British Crown. Kept in the Tower of London, they are glorious symbols representing 800 years of the monarchy. Visit the Tower of London on the north bank of the River Thames, and you’ll get a chance to see the famous Crown Jewels up close.
If you don’t want to wait to travel all the way to England, you can see the Crown Jewels up close right from the comfort of your living room with this fantastic new coin from Great Britain’s Royal Mint. This £5 legal-tender coin is struck in 1.285 ounces of 91.67% fine gold. The second release of The Mint’s Tower of London series, it depicts a Coronation Crown, along with a portion of the Tower’s outer wall. You can put all four parts of the series together to complete the image, but only if you secure this second release while it’s still available!
Each 2019 Great Britain £5 Tower of London Crown Jewels Gold Proof available in this offer has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded proofs will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended.

Best of all, you can secure your piece of the Crown Jewels without running the risk of getting nabbed while trying to sneak it past the many levels of security. After all, there has been only one semi-successful theft of the Crown Jewels, and that was way back in 1671 when Irish rogue Thomas Blood disguised himself as a parson and over a period of weeks ingratiated himself with the 77-yearold Deputy Keeper of the Jewel House. Blood and his accomplices managed to make off with crown, a scepter, and an orb, but were apprehended at the castle perimeter before they could make good on their escape. His punishment? He was pardoned by King Charles II, who history has described as having a unique fondness for audacious scoundrels!
