The early history of the British Britannia Silver Coins is much different than that of its gold counterpart or even the silver coins issued as of 2013. From 1997 to 2012, the coins were available with .958 silver content and alternating effigies of Britannia that switched between various images of Britannia. Provident Metals now has 2008 British Britannia 1 oz Silver Coins available to purchase online.

When you purchase one of these 2008 British Britannia 1 oz Silver Coins online at Provident Metals, you will receive a coin that is in an individual protective flip. This 2008 design of Britannia on the reverse comes from John Bergdahl and was only used in 2008 on the reverse of BU Britannia Silver Coins.


For the obverse design of the 2008 British Britannia Silver Coin, Ian Rank-Broadleys portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is featured. It shows the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. The design includes inscriptions of ELIZABETH II, D.G. REG FID DEF, and 2 POUNDS.


In the reverse design of 2008 Britannia 1 oz Silver Coins, the mint features a standing effigy of Britannia from John Bergdahl. The design shows Britannias figure emerging from the waves of a rough sea. She clutches a trident in one hand and a Union Jack shield in the other. Inscriptions include BRITANNIA, 2008, and ONE OUNCE FINE SILVER.


The release of British Britannia Silver Coins from 1997 to 2012 featured .958 silver content, as well as alternating designs. While Philip Nathans common depiction of Britannia from the gold coins featured during this period, it alternated each year with other depictions of Britannia, such as seated designs, images of Britannia in a chariot, and a so-called guardian design of Britannia.
