Royal Mint Unveiled a Limited Edition £100 Silver Coin

Two days ago, Royal Mint unveiled a new, limited-edition £100 silver coin with depiction of Big Ben clock tower. This is the first time the Mint has issued a coin specifically for New Year’s, and that’s also UK’s first £100 coin. The coin, which is 40mm wide and contains two ounces of .9999 fine silver, features the fourth main portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley and first used in 1998.

On the other side is Houses of Parliament clock tower (officially called the Elizabeth Tower) crated by Royal Mint engraver Glyn Davies, who pictured it from the street-level perspective most people have of the London landmark.
With just 50,000 of these coins available at face value of £100 it is the ideal choice to help someone embrace their inner Anglophile, a quintessentially British coin adorned with a true national icon, beautifully presented with a fascinating history of the sound that defines the nation’s clock.

The commemorative coin is expected to prove popular after the sell-out success of the first £20 coin, which was struck in honour of the birth of Prince George.
