The Great Fire is one of the most well-known disasters to hit London, when an accidental spark from a baker’s oven on Pudding Lane led to the destruction of a third of the city.
This 2016 £2 coin issued by the Royal Mint marks the 350th Anniversary of the iconic moment in the city’s history from which modern London emerged.
The reverse depicts the city of London burning in flames from a distance and was designed by Aaron West.
