Product Details

The Lunar Britannia is the first silver coin series struck by the 1,100 year old British Royal Mint using their new privy marked rim technique to deter counterfeiting; a privy marked rim featuring a total of eight iconic Year of the Horse emblems. The 2014 “Year of the Horse” Silver Britannia is available to American investors and collectors exclusively through Merit Gold & Silver. With extremely limited mintage, these coins will not be available long. The 2013 version is completely sold out and is commanding a premium on the secondary markets. The 2014 Lunar Series Silver Britannia features the bust of Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse and sculptor Philip Nathan’s image of a standing Britannia on the flipside. The personification of Great Britain is stunning with her flowing hair and gown. In addition to her trident, shield and helmet (paying homage to her Roman origin) she clenches an olive branch in her hand symbolizing her quest for peace. Comes in flip.

      Comments about 2014 1 oz Silver Britannia BU (w/Year of the Horse Privy Mark):

      Unfortunately I am very disappointed with this coin. I have never felt the need to write a poor review but in this case I do. I was very excited about the privy Brittania, especially since the privy mark is on the reed (a very cool idea). When the coin arrived I was disappointed because on the obverse of the coin near the bottom of the dress, the coin was clearly defective. The mountainous area that the lady is standing on and the word "NATHAN" was almost unreadable and had a smoothed out look. The mountainous area also had no definition to it. None of my other Brittanias have this condition (keep in mind I really like the 2015 Brit). I asked for an exchange and APMEX sent me a replacement.

      ....Much to my disappointment, the replacement coin arrived and had the same issue! It is too much of a hassle to return the coin again so I will probably just keep it. However, I felt like APMEX should have checked the coin that they sent me so that it would not have the same issue. I consider this poor quality control.
