The obverse showcases a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Royal Mint engraver, Jody Clark. This is the fifth portrait of Her Majesty to grace UK coinage during her long reign as a British monarch. “ELIZABETH II” is inscribed, along with the coin’s denomination.
The Lunar Britannia series–part of the Royal Mint’s flagship bullion series–are the first silver coins struck using the mint’s privy marked rim technique. A total of eight Year of the Horse privy marks appear around the coin’s rim to celebrate the Chinese zodiac, and also to deter counterfeiting.
Britannia, the female embodiment of Great Britain, stands tall on the reverse. She holds Poseidon’s trident in one hand and a shield and olive branch in the other. The name Britannia is based on Greek and Roman geographical terms. Inscriptions include “BRITANNIA” and the coin’s weight, purity, and year of issue.
The Silver Britannia has been annually released since 1997, and has since become highly sought after by investors and collectors around the globe. In recent years, the design was upgraded to include micro-engraved radial lines in the field of the reverse and a textured field on the obverse. This acts as both an authentication measure and a protection against visual damages like small scratches.
Silver Britannias ship in brilliant uncirculated condition as received from the mint. Individual coins come in plastic flips, with higher quantities available in plastic tubes and monster boxes.
