2019 Great Britain £2 1-oz Silver Oriental Britannia NGC MS69 First Releases - Black Core
Iconic Britannia Bullion Coins Pay Tribute to Their Eastern Roots!
Starting the moment she appeared on the first British Trade Dollars in 1895, the regal and assertive Britannia became a familiar sight for merchants in China and throughout Asia. From the 90% fine silver dollars of the 19th century to the highly pure bullion of the 21st century, the heritage of trade between these two corners of the world continues – with Britannia's flowing robe, outstretched trident and Union Jack shield still featured on British silver coins exchanged today.
Now, in its ongoing series that commemorates both the symbolic history of Britannia in Asian commerce as well as the vital role her namesake coin serves there today, the United Kingdom's Royal Mint is releasing its 2019 Britannia Bullion Coin, featuring a gorgeous border inspired by the artistic patterns of East Asia!
The coin available in this offer has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in near-perfect Mint State-69 (MS69) condition, a distinction that means this almost-flawless coin will showcase an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections – well above and beyond the quality of the vast majority of coins in the series. In addition, NGC has certified this Oriental Britannia to be a First Releases (FR) coin, a designation that means the coin was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of its release. It will come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with a black display core and encapsulated with an exclusive Britannia label.
- AN ENDURING DESIGN . . . – Philip Nathan's vision of Britannia, the time-honored personification of the British Isles, has been featured on Royal Mint bullion since 1987. Now in her third decade on the Silver Britannia, Nathan's creation looks as beautiful as ever!
- . . . WITH A STUNNING TWIST! . . . – Unlike the Britannia Silver Bullion of the past twenty years, this coin features an intricate oriental border evocative of designs found in the Chinese-themed rooms at Buckingham Palace and the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.
- EXPERTLY MINTED, HIGHLY PURE SILVER – Each Britannia is struck in one ounce of 99.9% fine silver by the artisans of the Royal Mint, resulting in coins that exhibit superb details and lustrous finishes.
- UK LEGAL TENDER – Each One-Ounce Silver Britannia is two pounds sterling United Kingdom legal tender, as struck into each coin's obverse along with Jody Clark's most recent profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. In addition, you’ll find the Queen's portrait is set against an elaborately textured guilloche field!
- GRADED IN NEAR-PERFECT UNCIRCULATED CONDITION – Your coin has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in near-perfect Mint State-69 (MS69) condition.
- KEY FIRST RELEASES CERTIFICATION – NGC has certified your Oriental Britannia to be a First Releases (FR) coin. It will come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with a black display core and encapsulated with an exclusive Britannia label.
