Coin Information:

This coin was issued in 2020 as part of The Royal Mint’s Tower of London £5 series. The Infamous Prison £5 celebrates the gruesome history of the Tower, where criminals had their fate decided. Heraldic artist Timothy Noad has designed this brand new Royal Mint £5, which features the inscription ‘MY LIBERTIE DENIED’. These words have been taken from ‘graffiti’ in the Tower which has been attributed to Thomas Miagh, a prisoner at the Tower! This coin also features the final jigsaw-style section of the Norman arched window which completes the motif of the 2020 Tower of London £5 coin series. The obverse features the fifth portrait of HM QEII by Jody Clark.
