Product DetailsThe 2013 Britannia artist, Robert Hunt, has created a graceful Britannia, seated in traditional pose, robed in the classical tradition and with Corinthian helmet and Neptune’s trident to represent her claim as ‘ruler of the waves'.
Starting in 2013, the Britannia will be minted in even finer Precious Metals, including the purest .999 fine Silver. Britannia bullion coins will carry the original standing portrait of Britannia by Philip Nathan. Britannia Proof coins will feature a different design each year. She is the ultimate British symbol – designed by a British artist, approved by the Queen and struck by The Royal Mint. This coin containing a full five ounces of fine Silver is a hugely impressive first for the Britannia range: the first of the new coins, the first Britannia Five-Ounce coin and the first Britannia to be struck in high relief. Britannia has always reflected Britain’s position, strengths and aspirations. She has been reimagined over time and has earned her reputation as the changing face of Britain. Nathan's Britannia turns her head, a listening pose that indicates she is open to a world beyond Britain, the owl that accompanies her is a symbol of her wisdom. So closely tied with the coinage is Britannia that she is protected by law – only coins struck by The Royal Mint are genuine Britannia coins. Collectors will be very keen to secure these first five-ounce coins. Only 1,150 of them will be able to add one to their exclusive collections, for the issue of these premium coins, with luxurious presentation, is strictly limited.
