2017 1oz Silver Coin – Big Ben


The 2017 1oz Silver Coin - Big Ben

This is a one ounce silver bullion coin from the Royal Mint's Landmarks of Britain collection. This is a Britannia-style coin, diameter 38.61mm and 999 fine silver. Denominated £2 and is legal tender in the UK.

Intended as a bullion coin, many of these were sold outside the UK but they do find their way back. The coin is also available as a Silver Proof and a Silver Proof Frosted Reverse. SCBC: RMB12

The Reverse was designed by Glyn Davies and Laura Clancy and depicts a view of the Elizabeth Tower, better known Big Ben (which is actually the name of the bell that is housed in the tower), and one of the great icons of London sited next to the Houses of Parliament.

The Obverse shows a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.

Which Mint: The Royal Mint
The Royal Mint is the designated place for the UK to mint coins. It dates back well over 1000 years and is a Government-owned company. 

Formed in the reign of Alfred the Great about the year 886, during the period 1279-1812 it was generally referred to as The Tower Mint as it was housed at the Tower of London. The Master of The Royal Mint has included famous figures such as Sir Isaac Newton.

Since 2010 it has operated as Royal Mint Ltd, a company owned by HM Treasury, under an exclusive contract to supply all coinage for the UK although it also produces medals and coins for other countries. It is currently located at Llantrisant, Wales.

There is also an on-line shop at The Royal Mint Shop.
Country of Origin: United Kingdom
The United Kingdom (UK) is the Union of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is often refered to as Great Britain (GBR). It has a long, rich history.

The orignal coinage was Pounds, Shillings and Pence but since decimalisation on 15 February 1971, it is £1 = 100p, that is One Pound = 100 pence. The coinage of the UK is also a long history, the Royal Mint being established as long ago as 886AD when coins were hammered. Today there is perhaps 30 billion coins in circulation, and many (numismatic) collectors coins and sets are issued frequently in gold, silver and other metals.
