History comes alive at the Tower of the London. From Traitors’ Gate to the Bloody Tower, within its stone walls echoes of the past are everywhere. Once home to kings and queens, lions and bears, its most famous residents are the ravens.
The Ravens of the Tower of London is a group of at least six captive ravens which live at the Tower of London. Their presence is traditionally believed to protect The Crown and the tower; a superstition holds that "if the Tower of London ravens are lost or fly away, the Crown will fall and Britain with it".
This is the first time the Tower of the London has been celebrated on UK coinage and these infamous Tower denizens have been brought to life on the first coin in the series.
