  5. 2019 Tower of London - Legend of the Ravens Description The Royal Mint celebrates one of the most iconic Royal Palaces of the United Kingdom . ‘ The Tower of London’ . The White Tower was built over a thousand years ago, by William the Conquer, it stands proudly on the Banks of the river Thames. The Tower’s long history has seen it bear witness to some of the great events from our history, including Anne Boelyn who was imprisoned and executed there, it was also home to the Royal Mint for over five hundred years. It was even London’s very first Zoo. Today it is home to the Crown Jewels and are guarded by the Yeoman Warders, who are former members of the United Kingdoms armed forces. The Tower is also home to Ravens, it is not known when the ravens first came to the Tower of London, but their presence there is surrounded by myth and legend. Unusually for birds of ill omen, the future of both Country and Kingdom relies upon their continued residence, for according to legend, at least six ravens must remain lest both Tower and Monarchy fall. The first Royal Observatory was housed in the north eastern turret of the White Tower. Legend has it that John Flamsteed (1646 – 1719), the ‘astronomical observator’ complained to King Charles II that the birds were interfering with his observations. The King therefore ordered their destruction only to be told that if the ravens left the Tower, the White Tower would fall and a great disaster befall the Kingdom. Sensibly the King changed his mind and decreed that at least six ravens should be kept at the Tower at all times to prevent disaster.

  8. It’s that time of the year again – the popular Chinese Panda coin has debuted in proof and bullion coin form. In production since 1982, the range has become a staple of the bullion coin market in particular, although rising mintages has seen premiums fall from previously lofty highs. As before, each variant of the coin, and there are twelve of them at present, carries the same design, so choice is down to budget and desire, we guess. Depicting an adult holding a cub, it’s a decent design and exactly what you would expect from this quite conservative range. The obverse face carries on with the ubiquitous Temple of Heaven design, and we’d have expected nothing less. The range remains unchanged from recent years. Gold bullion versions come in 1g, 3g, 8g, 15g and 30g weights. Gold proof in 50g, 100g, 150g and 1000g (1kg) weights. The silver bullion coin is available in the 30g size only, with 150g and 1kg weights being struck only in the limited proof format. Mintages also remain static, with the notable exception of the 30g gold bullion coin. This variant has seen a rise to one-million units, so it looks like China at least, is expecting demand to be healthy this year. Struck by the Shenzhen Guobao Mint, the Shenyang Mint, and the Shanghai Mint, the bullion coins should be available from 30 October, the proof will debut from 10 December. Those wanting to jump in right now would do well to head on over to LPM, who already have many of the bullion coins up for order.
