Steadfast and confident, Britannia is a symbol of resilience and strength. In 2017, The Royal Mint commemorates the 30th year since Britannia’s bullion design was launched to market. Sculptor Philip Nathan, the designer of the first Britannia bullion in 1987, envisaged her as a classic and evolving icon. In these additions to the bullion collection, she stands firm as a powerful gale whips around her shield, Corinthian helmet and olive branch. This design features a radial sunburst at her back.

In 2017 the Silver Britannia coin celebrates its 20th anniversary. To celebrate this significant milestone, the 2017 Britannia design has been refreshed with a high-security radial sunburst background, modernizing this iconic coin. Debuting in 1997, the first Silver Britannia featured the same design as its Gold counterpart. Issuing years from 1997 to 2012 were minted in .958 pure Silver, while those minted in 2013 and thereafter feature .999 fine Silver.

Britannia, the female personification of the British Isles, takes her name from an ancient term for Great Britain and has been a popular figure since the 1st century, when she was first depicted on Roman coinage under the rule of Emperor Hadrian. Illustrated as a goddess, Britannia resembles the Roman figure Boudica. Britannia first appeared on British coins in 1672, when she graced the farthing. She was a firm fixture on coins from this point onwards, appearing on pennies issued under every monarch from 1797 until decimalization, when she was chosen to appear on the 50 pence coin until 2008.

Over the years, the image of Britannia has altered slightly, with her maritime links being emphasized by switching her spear to a trident. Britannia is seen as a symbol of British unity, liberty and strength, meaning she resurfaces during particularly challenging times. Like Columbia in the U.S. and Marianne in France, Britannia becomes more prominent in times of war or when national pride is booming.

In 1987, Britannia’s image graced the new Gold bullion coin minted by the Royal Mint known as the Gold Britannia. These Gold coins have since grown in popularity as an investment and a collector’s piece. Gold Britannias are available in sizes as small as 1/20 oz and as large as 5 oz Gold coins. In 1997, the Royal Mint expanded this design to a Silver bullion coin known as the Silver Britannia. Over time, both the Gold Britannia and Silver Britannia have experienced changes in design and an increase in metal purity, making them major players in the modern coin market.

Great just to put away in the safe, in case you want to unload it in the future. It comes in a coin flip which for convenience and protection is good enough. Going forward, I won't even bother ordering the plastic capsules.

I also ordered one in the APMEXclusive protective "slab/case" cards because i loved the coin and design that much! This coin is so amazingly detailed and the design alone makes the purchase worth it but the design and the quality is so outstanding! This is such a beautiful coin and i love it! If you dont have any silver Britannias, this is the perfect coin to start with!
