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.

2016 Great Britain 1 oz Silver Britannia

By  annerew

from Smyrna, GA

5.0

Being a Brit I HAD to have one of these commemorative 1 oz. silver coins. They arrived in beautiful condition (4), individually packed in a protective plastic pouch. I am a gambler and the prospect of winning 500 more was an incentive. Always the optimist, I should know better, I never win anything but I love these coins, I wish I could have bought 400 but... My grandchildren will receive one each, I'll keep the other two.

Very good value

By  Dennis

from Rochester, NY

5.0

Here is a fine coin, similar in value to the Eagle and the Maple Leaf. The premiums were in line with what I expect from those coins, and they are an excellent way to prepare for a dollar that doesn't buy anything. They are sealed in a rather lightweight plastic case, which protects the coins from wear and damage at the expense of taking extra space in storage. They are a bit harder to stack than, say, the Eagles or the Kookaburras. Also, the finish seems a little less crisp than the other coins. This does not detract from the value as some people prefer this instead of the perfect mirror finish of the Eagles or the matte Canadian maple leafs or Kookaburra. And you are still getting genuine silver.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Collectible (lower mintage)

Easy process to purchase

By  NewBuyer

4.0

The coin arrived in perfect condition. Well packaged for shipping and discrete. Buying is easy. APMEX communication is great, notified about every step from purchase to shipping. I gave four stars because I think the packaging for shipping could be redesigned to reduce shipping costs. If you can reduce shipping costs I could buy more often. I understand the current package of using a box inside another box with foam padding protects the coin. Will padded envelopes protect the coin and reduce shipping costs?
