2018 Blackpool Tower Silver Proof £5 Coin. This coin was originally part of the Portrait of Britain 4 Coin Set, however after much demand we have decided to offer the coins individually.
The coin comes in a protective capsule and is displayed in a purple Chard presentation box.
Limited to one per person.
The design for Blackpool Tower was heavily inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Building on the tower started in 1891, and it opened to the public in 1894. The tower is over 518 feet tall.
The fifth coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse of the coin. It was designed by The Royal Mint artist, Jody Clark.
The reverse image was designed by Glyn Davies and shows a ground view of Blackpool Tower, with seagulls in the sky.
The splash of colour was added to the coins using a technique known as trichromatic colour printing.
|Alloy||.925 Sterling Silver|
