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 from the Chinese Lunar Calendar. 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.
