2013 1 oz Silver Britannia Premier Coin MS-69 PCGS

2013 1 oz Silver Britannia Premier Coin MS-69 PCGS

With all the beauty of the Proof coin design, the Brilliant Uncirculated version brings a fine design by an accomplished artist within reach – and it still contains a full ounce of the Royal Mint's finest silver. Britannia is so strongly linked with the coins of Britain that her use is protected in law – only Britannia coins from The Royal Mint are genuine. As befits an icon such as Britannia, portrait sculptor Robert Hunt has created a superb design. At first she appears traditional, her seated pose and classical robes lending a familiar air – bringing to mind the iconic reverse design of the 50p. But her head turns to listen to the world, she is interested in lands beyond her borders, a wisdom symbolised by the owl. Robert Hunt’s design is available exclusively on the Britannia Proof range. The one and only exception is this one ounce coin struck in the same .999 silver to gleaming Brilliant Uncirculated standard. This is the perfect way to own this important, limited-time design at a very affordable price or to gift a coin steeped in patriotism and history to someone very special.

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.
