Silver Britannia Proofs Return With New One-Year-Only Design for 2020
Great Britain’s Royal Mint introduced its premier Gold Britannia bullion series in 1987 and followed it up 10 years later with the Silver Britannia series in 1997. Today, the Britannia coins are among the most premier names in precious metal coinage. 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 releases – and this year is no different! With a new contemporary design, we're proud to bring you this 2020 Silver Britannia Six-Piece Proof Set.
The new one-year-only design for 2020 depicts Britannia standing on the shore of her homeland, a warrior goddess armed with a trident, shield and Corinthian helmet. The British flag proudly waves in the background as a coastal breeze seems to be blowing her garments as waves crash around her feet. It’s a wonderful design that was expertly crafted on the coins by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields. It’s a wonderful set of coins that will assume a place of honor in anyone’s collection.
Struck in 1.925 ounces of highly-pure 99.9% silver by the artisans of the Royal Mint, the coins in the set include the following weights and denominations: 1-ounce (£2), 1/2-ounce (£1), 1/4-ounce (50-pence), 1/10-ounce (20-pence), 1/20-ounce (10-pence) and 1/40-ounce (5-pence). And with only 1,000 sets for worldwide release you’ll need to act fast to guarantee you get your Silver Britannia Proofs! This set is the only way to own fractional sizes of the 2020 Britannia Silver Proof coins as they are not being made individually by the Royal Mint! Each set will also come in its original government packaging from the mint along with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Like the others that came before them, the coins in this 2020 Silver Britannia Six-Piece Proof Set still stand tall, representing the ideals of pride, fortitude and progress – an enduring symbol of British strength.
