Coin from the Landmarks of Britain series from Trafalgar Square, minted in 2018 by The Royal Mint, 1 oz silver.
Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace... these are possibly the most iconic places in London, the capital of the United Kingdom. In 2015, The Royal Mint decided to turn the most significant corners of the giant city into a series of coins, which were spectacularly received by the public and whose stocks were quickly exhausted.
This is the third coin in the series: Trafalgar Square, the square built in 1845 to commemorate the Battle of Trafalgar in which the British army defeated those of France and Spain.
The design of the Trafalgar Square is shown on the cross, with one of the four lions carved in bronze in the foreground, which borders the giant column of Nelson, the admiral who led that battle. Although this is usually the protagonist of the place, here it is the animal that receives all the attention, and its design does it justice, with a spectacular coat that contributes to accentuate its ferocity.
On the top of the coin, and surrounding the coin, we find the name of the coin, the year it was minted and the amount of metal and its fineness.
On the face is the design of King Elizabeth II by the artist Jordi Clark, with a background of small dots in bas-relief that help to create depth of space. Also noteworthy is the contrast between the rectangular and straight lines of her crown and the wavy lines of her hair. On it, his name and the nominal value of the coin (2 pounds).
