Britannia Silver Coins
The Silver Britannia’s attractive design is meant to appeal to collectors and investors alike. The obverse of the 1997 issue of the Silver coin features the “Third Portrait” of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II used on British decimal bullion coins dated from 1985 to 1997. In 1998, the obverse design of the Silver Britannia coin, along with the obverse designs on all other British coins, changed to depict the “Fourth Portrait,” a more mature likeness of Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse of the Silver Britannia coin bears one of several depictions of Britannia, who embodies the history and national sentiment of Great Britain. Britannia first appeared on Roman coinage in the 1st century, and made her first appearance on a British coin in the 17th century. The most common Standing Britannia image was originally engraved by G.W. De Saulles and used on the florins of Edward VII from 1902 to 1910, and on the Gold Britannia coins for most of the issues following 1987. In this design, Britannia appears in a horse-drawn chariot and resembles the Roman figure Boudica.
