On 2nd September 1666 Thomas Farriner awoke to find his house ablaze with himself and his family trapped upstairs.
The Farriners managed to escape across rooftops but their maid-servant, too scared to make the jump, became the first victim of The Great Fire of London.
Over four days the fire blazed until it was finally brought under control by the King's troops when the easterly wind that had been fanning the flames finally dropped. The fire had destroyed virtually all of the old walled City of London, taking with it the homes of 70,000 of the area's 80,000 residents.
Now, over 350 years on, we commemorate the anniversary of The Great Fire of London with the special gold-plated commemorative ingot.
Painstakingly illustrated – 24 Carat Gold-plate
The ingot has been expertly plated in 24 Carat Gold and struck to a pristine proof-like finish, before the stunning full colour illustration has been applied. It features an enduringly fascinating British subject – The Great Fire of London – by the celebrated artist Trevor Mitchell depicting the incredible events of over 350 years ago.
