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.

Why invest in the 1 oz Silver Britannia?

Many buy Silver coins produced by The Royal Mint because these sovereign Silver coins have a face value and the Silver bullion coins are guaranteed for weight and purity by the British government. The 1 oz Silver Britannia is manufactured to specific bullion standards set by The Royal Mint. Many also purchase these Silver coins for sale because the coins have a low premium over the spot price of Silver. Buying this world coin can add stability to your investment portfolio and the Silver bullion can also be used with Precious Metals IRAs.

Are 1 oz Silver Britannias eligible for Precious Metals IRAs?

Before you buy Silver coins for a Precious Metals IRA, it is wise to make sure the Silver bullion coins meet the high standards set by the Internal Revenue Service for use with a Precious Metals IRA. The 2015 1 oz Silver Britannia is approved for use with Precious Metals IRAs because it is minted with .999 fine Silver. To add Silver coins for sale at APMEX to your Precious Metals IRA, contact our IRA specialists at (800) 418-0235 or IRA@apmex.com. The guidelines for adding world coins to Precious Metals IRAs are very specific and APMEX specialists will help you every step of the way.

Love the design

By  TC

from IN

4.0

Absolutely love the design on this coin. I love how there are several different finishes on the coin and yet they seem to flow together flawlessly to create a superb design. The only problem was that the one i received a pretty good size scratch across the chest of lady Britannia. I will certainly add more of these in the future.

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.
