These Lunar Britannia coins have a few light spots or hairlines. 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.
