Product Description

This is the first time that the 1100 year-old Royal Mint’s classic 1oz Silver Britannia has been embellished with a symbol from the Chinese lunar-solar calendar, and the first time that this legendary coin, bearing Philip Nathan’s instantly-recognisable ‘Britannia’, has carried any part of a design around its milled edge. Royal Mint Chief Engraver, Gordon Summers said “Our main challenge in developing the Lunar Britannia coin was incorporating the lunar symbol around the edge of the coin with clarity and quality of design, yet retaining the beauty and the impact of Philip Nathan’s Britannia figure”. And the end result? The elegantly-curled figure of a snake appears at intervals around the edge of the coin, as though standing guard over the proud Britannia - a celebration of the ‘Year of the Snake’ in classic style.

Special Edging is Really Nice

By Len

from East Hanover, NJ

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Recognized Brand

      Comments about 2013 1 oz Lunar Silver Britannia - Year of the Snake:

      I purchased this coin because it has a year of the snake edging eight times around the coin, which is somewhat unique and beautiful. The coin itself has a high luster throughout which I think could have been enhanced with contrasting finishes. Nevertheless, a nice coin for any collection. Good service as usual from APMEX.

          The British mint disappoints

              APMEX service is excellent as usual! I was disappointed in the coin, there was what appeared to be milk spots or some kind of dirty residue. Besides a collector coin, it's hard to justify the price over premium compared to Perth mint lunar series.
