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.

Buying Silver coins is affected by the supply and demand for Silver.
When buying Silver coins, the Silver price is based on supply, demand and production. From 1 oz Silver Britannias to Silver paste for solar panels, Silver has many uses that can increase the demand for the Precious Metal. The price of Silver coins for sale is also influenced by the cost of mining the Precious Metal, and in recent years new technological breakthroughs in mining have vastly improved overall Silver production. Today, these world coins are manufactured with some of the approximately 671 million troy ounces of Silver mined yearly throughout the world.
