Royal Mint Product Description:

It is a story so spectacular that it has survived for centuries, retold in the history books, on the National Curriculum and even through popular songs. The Great Fire of London ravaged the city, but its leaders and inhabitants created a new London from the ashes, proving their endurance. This commemorative coin has been struck in 22 carat gold and finished to The Royal Mint's unrivalled Proof standard - perfect for collectors of gold coins  or for anyone with an interest in British culture and history.

Aaron West, a member of The Royal Mint's team of expert designers, has captured the devastating scenes of the time from the perspective of one of the Londoners seeking sanctuary on the Thames. His inspiration, along with first-hand accounts from popular figures such as Samuel Pepys, and the role played by The Royal Mint's home at the Tower of London, are all explored in the accompanying booklet. Your coin is presented in a wooden case with a Certificate of Authenticity confirming its low mintage. Remember the tragedy, but celebrate the resilience of London, with this, the only official UK coin to honour the event.
