The inaugural coin within this series meticulously portrays the revered leader and most influential member of the Shelby family, Thomas Shelby. On the coin’s reverse, Tommy is impeccably dressed in a timeless and sophisticated suit, complemented by a coat that exudes elegance, alluding to his enduring sense of style. Atop his head rests a flat cap, emblematic of the era in which he thrives. Behind him, a discerning eye will catch Tommy’s distinctive silhouette, smoking a cigarette. The background wallpaper features a pocket-watch suspended from a chain, a cherished accessory that remains an ever-present companion in the main character’s journey.
Towards the top of the coin, an inscription captures one of Tommy’s key quotes and in the lower section, his name is etched onto a razor blade. Both elements bear a luxurious gold-plated finish.
On the coin’s obverse, set against the urban backdrop of a working-class neighbourhood in Birmingham, three pivotal characters come into view: Thomas, his brother Arthur, and their aunt Polly. On the right side of the coin we see the official 10th anniversary logo.
