The British Silver Britannia, a numismatic treasure, first graced the scene in 1997. In its early years, the Silver Britannia took a different design path than its gold counterpart. From 1997 to 2011, the reverse image of Britannia alternated between Philip Nathans design featured on the Gold Britannia and unique designs by various other artists. Today, you can add 1998 1 oz British Silver Britannia Coins to your collection with ease at Provident Metals.

As for the reverse side of the 1998 Britannia 1 oz Silver Coin, it features the cherished image of Britannia, originally created by Philip Nathan in 1987. Britannia stands in a commanding front-facing pose, her gaze fixed on the trident held in her right hand. She wears a Corinthian helmet and holds an olive branch in her left hand, resting it upon the Union Jack shield. Inscriptions here include BRITANNIA, 1998, ONE OUNCE, and FINE SILVER.


Britannia’s image evolved with changing artistic styles and political developments. She often appeared with classical drapery, a Corinthian helmet, and the Union Jack. During this period, Britannia became closely associated with the British Empire’s naval and imperial power.
