Previously, Royal Mint had only a small bullion range in their collection. But they are expanding their range in recent times. Most recently, they launched Anniversary Britannia and right that they create this bullion series called “Landmarks Of Britain”. They have planned to introduce four coins for this series.
These colored coins are planning to create by inspiring from four landmarks of London. The first bullion coin is released as the inspiration landmark of Big Ben. It is the most popular landmarks in London, and the coin shows the inspiration of this tremendous architectural design. Interesting fact that, Big Ben is the name of a tower bell placed at the north end of the Westminster Palace.
It’s well-known that the name Big Ben is used to the honor of first commissioner Sir Benjamin Hall who serves the period of 1855-1858. The original bell was placed in 1856 but broke very quickly and replaced in 1858, but again it has broken. At least, a small hammer was utilized to strike. Big Ben is still a damaged bell which gives a particular sound because of the crack, and it sounds like musical note E. The sound is so famous right now that it reminds the fabric of British life.
Instead of using the straight image of Big Ben which normally portraits in movies and TV shows, Royal mint decided to use the tourist view of the tower. A view from the street covering with a sight of the typical weather of London. Considering the two landmarks – “Big Ben and Buckingham Palace”, Royal mint designers decided to show on the surface of 2 Oz silver coin in 2014 and 2015 which is nearly cost £100. The one with Big Ben face on it, sold quickly and Royal mint acquired a great value. Following the success of Big Ben, they decided to release the 1 Oz silver coin bullion. And they are getting success on that too.
One ounce silver coin bullion is priced slightly high compared to the Britannia. They released only fifty thousand pieces minted per design considering the four landmarks. The demand as estimated is an uprising. You can buy this silver coin bullion from the store of LPM.hk. Their coins come in an original and unique capsule.
Though it’s slightly expensive than other series, it’s our high recommendation to collect this one. It will add up excellent value to your collection.
