The Britannia Series is the official bullion collection of England and is produced by the Royal Mint of England. Introduced in gold in 1987 and expanded to silver in 1997, the series is popular with investors for the use of pure silver and gold, as well as its iconic annual design.

The Royal Mint of England, like many other sovereign mints, does not add colorization directly to its major bullion coin collections. The occasional proof or commemorative coin may feature colorization, but in the case of British Britannia Silver Coins, colorization is completed after production and shipment from the mint. These coins were colorized on the reverse by Emporium Hamburg of Germany.


On the obverse side of 2016 Colorized British Britannia 1 oz Silver Coins, you will find the fifth-generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief wearing the impressive George IV State Diadem Crown. Designed by Jody Clark, this definitive modern portrait of the Queen released on British coins starting in 2016. The background field of the coins has a hammered, or stippled, finish and there are inscriptions of 2 Pounds, Elizabeth II, and D.G. Reg F.D.


The reverse field of the 2016 Colorized British Britannia 1 oz Silver Coin comes with an image of Britannia. Created in 1987 by Philip Nathan for the debut of the British Britannia Gold Coin, it shows Britannia as she stands guard on the southern coast of the British Isles. She clutches a shield in her left hand with a trident in her right hand. These coins have been colorized to bring Britannias image to life.

The entire background field has a sea-blue colorization with green beneath her feet. The trident is a powerful black with auburn hair on Britannia and a flash of red atop her Corinthian helmet. The shield is emblazoned with the red, white, and blue of the Union Jack flag. Inscriptions on this face of the coin include Britannia, 2016, and 1 oz 999 Fine Silver.


The British Britannia Silver Coin debuted in 1997. Originally offered with sterling silver content, or .925 silver, it features .999 pure silver content as of 2013.


These 2016 Colorized British Britannia 1 oz Silver Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and come with protective plastic capsules.
