Description

The Iconic Britannia, Captured in One Ounce of Fine Silver

The Pride of our Past and Face of our Future

Britannia has appeared on Britain’s coinage for centuries, her history interwoven with that of the nation she represents. After the collapse of Roman rule in Britain, it was during Elizabethan times that Britannia was revived as the personification of Britain. She went on to become an increasingly important symbol of identity among Britons as the changing country went through the political unification of England, Scotland, and later Ireland. For the last 300 years she has appeared on British coinage, her strong and recognisable image representing the mood of the time and the spirit of the nation in each depiction.

For the special gold and silver Britannia coin anniversaries in 2017, designer Louis Tamlyn has created a design that represents a modern Britain balancing heritage and progress. To celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the silver Britannia coin, the design also features a special trident mint mark with the number 20. Struck in one ounce of 999 fine silver, the coin is finished to Proof standard. Part of a Limited Edition Presentation of 7,500, each coin comes in a Royal Mint case with a booklet that charts Britannia’s journey through history to modern day and explores the designer’s inspiration.
