Guardians of the Tower
As a symbol of royal power for almost 1,000 years, The Tower of London stands majestically above the river Thames and remains one of Britain's most iconic attractions.
In its illustrious history the tower has been used as a prison, jewel house, mint and menagerie. Within its walls, stories and echoes of the past can be felt everywhere but history also lives inside the tower - in the recognisable symbol of dark: the ravens.
The Tower of London has been home to kings and queens, thieves and traitors, lions and bears. However, the ravens have always been present and are perhaps the most famous residents within the tower's walls. According to the legend, the kingdom will fall if the ravens will ever leave.
In tribute to these guardians of the Tower, The Royal Mint is releasing a range of Quarter-Ounce Gold Proof editions - a fitting honour to these symbols of British history.
