One of the most coveted pieces of silverware in world football is coming to Aylesbury on Monday as Barclays Bank host the latest leg of the trophy’s national tour.
The Barclays Premier League trophy will be on display in the bank’s town centre branch from 10am until 4pm, with the launch and ribbon cutting taking place between 1pm and 2pm.
The trophy, which is currently the prized possession of title holders Manchester City, was created by Royal Jewellers Asprey of London.
It consists of a trophy with a golden crown and a malachite plinth base. The plinth weighs 33 lbs (15 kg) and the trophy weighs 22 lbs (10 kg). The trophy and plinth are 76 cm (30 in) tall, 43 cm (17 in) wide and 25 cm (9.8 in) deep. Its main body is solid sterling silver and silver gilt, while its plinth is made of malachite, a semi-precious stone. The plinth has a silver band around its circumference, upon which the names of the title-winning clubs are listed.
