Unique Royal Mint Britannia Releases Now Available to Pre-order at APMEX
APMEX, the nation’s largest Precious Metals e-retailer, is thrilled to announce unique issues in the Britannia Series are now available to pre-order. These new Gold and Silver coins continue the classic imagery of Britain while paying homage to 19th century history.
The Britannia is The Royal Mint’s flagship series and both Gold and Silver Britannia coins have been popular around the world for more than two decades. Now, this timeless coin gets a special touch, with the addition of an Oriental border.
This simple but recognizable border pays homage to the British trade dollar, first minted in 1895. After the founding of Singapore and Hong Kong in the first half of the 19th century, a special dollar was produced to remove the reliance of a British Colony upon the various coins then in circulation. Additionally, this type of border is prominent at both Buckingham Palace and the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.
The Royal Mint introduced the Gold Britannia in 1987, showcasing a powerful design of Britannia herself, holding a trident and shield. Britannia has symbolized Britain’s strength and integrity on coinage since Roman times. After seeing immense popularity, the mint introduced the Silver Britannia series in 1997, featuring the same iconic design.
The 2018 Gold Britannia contains .9999 fine Gold and offers an extremely limited mintage of just 5,000 coins. Each 2018 Silver Britannia contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver and will be limited to 100,000 coins. Both the Gold and Silver coins will be offered in MintDirect® options as well, providing variety for collectors and investors at any level.
All 2018 Gold and Silver Britannias with Oriental Border are available to pre-order now at APMEX. This new release is the perfect way to build, or even start, an exceptional Precious Metals collection.
