Commemorating the world’s first underground railway

London Underground ‘Roundel’ Design

On 10 January 1863 the first section of the London Underground opened, an engineering triumph and a world first.

So special is this anniversary that not one but two circulating coins have been issued, which you can also buy as a set of two Silver Proof coins in a limited edition of just 1,500. See The Train coins.

The coins were designed by three of the UK’s leading artists. Edwina Ellis, creator of this ‘Roundel’ coin, is a pioneering engraver and printmaker and former ‘Art on the Underground’ artist. Her design, featuring the famous logo which first appeared in 1938, carries the edge inscription MIND THE GAP and uses lettering in the unique Johnston typeface used for London Underground signage.
