Years of issue:
The Yeoman Warders guard the historic fortress of The Tower of London.
Built by William the Conqueror to proclaim and defend his royal power, the Tower of London has stood on the banks of the River Thames for more than 1,000 years.
The Yeoman Warders are famous for their iconic red uniforms and are commonly referred to as ‘Beefeaters’. Even today, history and ceremony are woven into their daily duties.
To commemorate the Tower's guards, The Royal Mint has issued the third coin in their Tower of London Collection – The 2019 Yeoman Warders £5.
