APMEX, Inc., a leading online precious metals retailer based in Oklahoma City, is thrilled to announce the second release in The Royal Mint’s Landmarks of Britain series. This issue celebrates one of the most iconic structures in the world: London’s Tower Bridge.
The famous suspension bridge opened in 1894 and is so closely associated with London that it is often mistakenly called the London Bridge, which actually sits further west along the Thames River. Nearly 40,000 motorists, cyclists and pedestrians cross the Tower Bridge each day, while the bascules are raised around 1,000 times per year to allow ships to pass safely under the bridge.
The Landmarks of Britain series is unique in that, instead of the straight-on shots we see in movies and television, The Royal Mint designers chose to depict each iconic location as a tourist might view it – from an angled street view in what appears to be a slight haze. 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 the second release in this limited-mintage series to our customers,” APMEX Director of Merchandising Ryan Boyles said. “As The Royal Mint has done with the widely-popular Queen’s Beasts series, this striking series offers a fresh take on images recognized around the world. Additionally, the .999 fine Silver content means more opportunity for investors who trust The Royal Mint name for high-quality products.”
The 1 oz Silver Tower Bridge coin specifications mimic The Royal Mint’s 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.
The entire Landmarks of Britain series showcases classic British landmarks where tourists flock and locals regularly gather. When complete, the series will feature Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square. APMEX is the exclusive North American distributor for this new 1 oz Silver Tower Bridge coin so pre-order yours today to continue, or start, your Landmarks of Britain series at APMEX.
