The second in the Tower of London coin range, this £5 brilliant uncirculated coin displays one of the most iconic symbols of the Monarchy in Britain. The Crown Jewels coin features the crown of Mary of Modena, wife of King James II. The crown was part of a collection of three made for Mary of Modena in 1685 by Richard De Beauvoir: a state crown, coronation crown and a diadem (ornamental headdress). The coronation crown no longer exists but the others reside at the Tower of London as part of the Crown Jewels collection in the Jewel House.

The Crown Jewels are kept under armed guard at the Tower of London and are one of Britain's most iconic attractions, seen by visitors the world over to catch a glimpse of the Crown Jewels.

The collection has come together over the centuries, but most was destroyed after the English Civil War. After the restoration when King Charles II came to the throne, he ordered the recreation of the Crown Jewels after the previous medieval collection was melted down and minted into new coins under the orders of Oliver Cromwell and the victorious Parliamentarians.

  • Brilliant uncirculated coin, denomination £5.00
  • Obverse designer Jody Clark, reverse designer Glyn Davies.
  • Additional coins mark the Legend of the Ravens, Yeoman Warders and The Ceremony of the Keys.
