Hoist the Sails for the Silver Britannia’s 20th Anniversary!

Britannia, the embodiment of a nation and icon of maritime sovereignty, has symbolized Britain for centuries, appearing on coins dating all the way back to the Roman Empire. More recently, her name and image have graced Great Britain’s Britannia bullion coin series since 1987. Philip Nathan's design of Britannia walking along a wind-swept shore, trident in one hand with branch and shield in the other, won “Coin of the Year” honors in its premier year. Originally starting as a gold bullion series, silver Britannias started production 10 years later in 1997 with the same breathtaking design.

This iconic silver series celebrated its 20th anniversary with the 2017 One-Ounce Silver Britannia. Each was minted in one ounce of highly pure 99.9% fine silver and is legal tender two pounds sterling. The brilliantly struck and beautifully detailed Britannia herself is featured on one side while a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II graces the other – the ONLY 2017 release from the Royal Mint in 2017 to showcase designer Jody Clark’s new effigy of Her Majesty the Queen!

But what really makes this special Britannia even more special is that it not only celebrates the 20th anniversary of is the first silver Britannia coin, but represents the Mint’s FIRST-EVER mint-marked bullion coin! The mark can be seen in the form of the numeral “20” engraved between the prongs of a trident struck near the coin’s rim next to the word BRITANNIA. A special radial sunburst design has also been added to the coin’s fields to thwart any would-be counterfeiters.
