Bring home a beautiful woman with the 2014 Silver Britannia 1 oz coin from the Royal Mint.
This .999 silver coin has a face value of £2. The reverse features Britannia, the female personification of the island of Great Britain used since ancient Rome. Britannia first appeared on a coin in first century Rome, but was not included on British coinage until 1672.
The reverse image is of Britannia in her Roman-style helmet, holding Poseidon's trident in one hand and an olive branch and shield in the other. The shield is decorated in the same style as the British flag. Britannia’s dress and hair swirl in the wind as she looks out to sea, watchful against threats. The rim reads 1 oz 999 FINE SILVER, BRITANNIA 2014.
The obverse depicts Queen Elizabeth’s dignified portrait. The words ELIZABETH II DG REG FID DEF and 2 POUNDS are written around the rim.
The Britannia is 38.6 mm in diameter with a reeded edge. It was first released in 1997, though the Gold Britannia was first issued in 1987.

- nice coin with a few blemishesXiaohuion 11/18/14
Overallthis is a classic coin I love. Item received in good condition except a few blemishes on both sides. Maybe because of the proof mirror-like surface, any tiny blemish seems rather obvious. I don't know if this is common but I surely expected a flawless coin. Don't want if I can exchange the item.
- Brilliant Britannia!Anthonyon 10/16/14
OverallIn terms of bullion value, the Britannia is no different than the ASE, the Maples, or any other 1-ounce silver coin. But the finish is gorgeous - a high-luster, highly-polished finish that is closer to a proof finish than the matte finish we're used to. The design is very pretty too!
- WOWMichaelon 7/28/14
OverallI was tempted not to break the seal when my Britannia’s arrived. I am truly satisfied I did. The reflectivity of these Pieces is phenomenal, approaching Proof Like. Yes, they are pricey, but they are well worth the premium.

OverallI received this last week in near perfect condition. Fits perfect in a 39mm capsule. Every time I order from Provident, I receive wonderful products and wonderful service. Thank you, Provident!
- Flawless and BeautifulPaulon 2/14/14
OverallI'm glad I gave the Britannia another chance. My 2013 had slight flaws but the 2014 I just received is stunning. Flawless and one of the most beautifully designed coins there is. Fair price and great service - thanks PM.
- Little pricey over melt...But nice beautiful designFredon 2/12/14
OverallDesign on back reminds me of coins from yester year...would rather get something else a little less of the price of melt in bulk but every collection needs a few of these...coin I received was at least a 69...thanks for you great service...will buy from again...
- Oh How reflective!Uliseson 2/6/14
OverallI just received my roll of Silver Britannia and my oh my it is shiny!
The coin looks like its been buffed to a mirror finish. Very nice looking round. So nice that at first I thought it looked fake. I couldn't believe this was the finish for this round. I thought it would be more like the Silver Eagles. Nope, instead it is has a very reflective finish, kind of like those cheap plastic chrome plated coins you can find at a toy store. Overall, a very nice and shiny round.
Thanks Provident Metals! :)
- A Beauty, But Flawed, Again...Matthewon 1/27/14
OverallCompared to the 2013 I ordered from here, my Britannia did not arrive with scratches on it. However, it looks like it developed a milk spot, because it has an ugly spot on it that won't come out, and I choose not to clean any of my coins I get for obvious reasons. 5 stars for quick payment processing / shipping, and for the quality of the rest of my order but 1 star for Coin Quality on the Britannia, because of the likely milk spot that's on it.
- Absolute beautyRichardon 1/13/14
OverallI wanted to geographically diversify my silver collection as I only have samples from the U.S, Australia, China,and Canada. This coin is one of the best looking coins in my collection. It is as nice as many proof coins I own, and It was flawless under 5x magnification. Not to shabby for a bullion coin.I won't overlook the Britannia again, or Provident.
- Brilliant and Stunning!Timothyon 12/20/13
OverallThis is one brilliant and very shiny piece of silver. Has to be seen in person to truly appreciate it's beauty. Even the boring old portrait of the queen looks great. It's my very first Silver Britannia and certainly will not be my last!
