A Gorgeous New Design for the 2018 Britannia!

Over 2,000 years ago, when the Romans first landed on the shores of a massive island beyond the northernmost reaches of their empire, they named the discovered land Britannia. Over the years, the title of Britannia bloomed into a lyrical personification of the isles that evolved from the conquered figure imagined under Emperor Hadrian to the "warrior queen" of the Elizabethan era and beyond. And while the United Kingdom continues to change and evolve, the figure of Britannia still stands tall, illuminating the ideals of pride, fortitude and progress.

Britannia's beauty and symbolism has graced British coins for centuries. So, it was only natural for her to take center stage when the British Royal Mint introduced their premier gold bullion series in 1987. Bringing silver into the fold in 1997, today the Britannia is among the most premier names in precious metal coinage, standing with the South African Krugerrand, the American Eagle and the Canadian Maple Leaf. And while the bullion edition of the Britannia has kept its same design since 2013, each year brings an exciting new design to the Britannia Proof – and this year is no different! With a new contemporary design by one of England's rising young artists, we're proud to bring you the 2018 Five-Ounce Silver Britannia Proof!

Struck in five ounces of highly-pure 99.9% fine silver by the artisans of the Royal Mint, this legal-tender £10 (ten pounds) coin also comes graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in in gorgeous Gem Proof condition exhibiting superb details and a beautiful, lustrous finish! In addition, it will also be certified as a First Strike (FS) coin by NGC, meaning that it was among the first struck by the mint and was verified within the first 30 days of issue. And, with only 650 proofs for worldwide release, you’ll need to act fast to guarantee you get your Silver Britannia Proof!

Like the others that came before it, this 2018 Silver Britannia Proof both establishes and reimagines an enduring symbol of British strength. Whether you're new to the Britannia series or a longtime collector, coin fanatic or Anglophile, this vision is one worth bringing home. Don't miss this opportunity – order yours today!
