1987 was a milestone year for The Royal Mint, as it saw the introduction of a brand new gold U.K. coin. Named Britannia, it featured the mythical goddess and symbol of Britain. The new coinage quickly became a firm favourite of collectors, international coin buyers and investors alike. Now, to celebrate the anniversary, we have created this special half oz set in .958 Britannia Silver featuring all nine different designs created for Britannia coins in the last 25 years. Five designs are by the world renowned artist Philip Nathan, who sculpted the very first Britannia used in 1987, which won the prestigious Coin of the Year award. The other four coins are by eminent artists Christopher Le Brun RA, John Bergdahl, Suzie Zamit and David Mach.
Each limited edition coin set includes a luxury presentation case with a certificate of authenticity and a special anniversary information booklet detailing the history of Britannia on U.K. coins. It also contains revealing insights about the inspiration for each of the designs in the artists’ own words. Displayed together, the coins are astonishingly beautiful. It is also fascinating to see how each reflects the spirit of the time, the skill of the artist and the craftsmanship of the experts here at The Royal Mint. The satisfaction and reward of owning one these anniversary sets is best expressed by the words Christopher Le Brun RA, used to describe his 2007 Britannia coin: “I have tried to make something that I myself would enjoy returning to look at.”
