    The Britannia collection is highly valued as one of the top annual coin releases by the Royal Mint of England. The Royal Mint started the Britannia series in 1987 as a gold bullion coin,  eventually expanding to silver and platinum. The British silver Britannia holds the prestigious title of being the official silver bullion coin of Great Britain and features a revered and iconic design on its reverse side. With its roots dating back to the late 17th century in British coinage, Britannia has gained global recognition as a cherished symbol of Great Britain and the Royal Mint.

    British Britannia Silver coins

    Only some other coins, like the British Britannia coin, can claim the distinction of having over 11 centuries of minting history. Produced by the esteemed Royal Mint, the silver Britannia coin carries a rich historical legacy. Throughout the evolution of the British Empire and its societal transformations, the process of silver coin production has remained remarkably consistent. The Royal Mint adheres to the highest standards achievable with modern technology, making the British Britannia a highly coveted coin sought after by collectors and investors. Acquiring these silver coins enhances your collection or investment portfolio and adds a tangible connection to a thousand years of remarkable coinage.

    Brief History of the Britannia silver coin

    Collectors so well received the Royal Mint's introduction of gold Britannia coins in 1987 that the mint decided to manufacture a silver version in 1997. Throughout 15 years, the silver Britannia coins underwent notable modifications in size, weight, and composition.

    Between 1997 and 2012, these coins were crafted from an alloy called Britannia silver, which consisted of a blend of silver and copper. This alloy, introduced during King William III's recoinage scheme in 1696, replaced the sterling silver standard. Britannia silver had a silver content of .958 and contained 11 ½ troy oz of silver in the pound troy.

    In 2013, the Royal Mint changed the coins' formation. They increased the silver purity to .999 pure silver and slightly reduced the mass and size.

    In addition to these alterations in size, shape, and silver purity, the silver Britannia coins have only undergone one significant modification, which involves the utilization of distinct depictions of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse side. However, the reverse side has consistently featured Philip Nathan's depiction of powerful Britannia in every release.

    Britannia Silver Coins Design 

    The British silver Britannia coins have displayed three distinct depictions of Queen Elizabeth II on their obverse side. Notably, the 1997 silver Britannias are unique within the series as they exclusively feature the third-generation portrait of the Queen, created by Raphael Maklouf in 1985. This portrayal presents a right-profile image of the Queen adorned with the royal diadem crown, earrings, and a necklace, distinguishing it from earlier and later designs.

    From 1998 to 2015, the silver Britannia coins displayed the fourth-generation design by Ian Rank-Broadley. His realistic portrayal of the Queen in the right profile at 70 became widely popular.

    In 2016, Jody Clark's fifth-generation portrait of Her Majesty was introduced, appearing on the silver Britannia and other coinage from the Royal Mint.  With the passing away of Her Highness in early 2023, the obverse side of the new British silver Britannia coins showcases the inaugural portrait of King Charles III. Designed by Martin Jennings, the picture presents the King in left-profile relief, notably without a crown.

    On the reverse side of these coins, the Royal Mint continues to feature Philip Nathan's depiction of Britannia, chosen through a competition held by the Mint during the 1980s. Britannia is represented as a powerful female figure standing on the southern coast of the British Isles, near the water's edge. Adorned with a Corinthian helmet, her windswept hair cascades beneath it while her gown billows in the wind. Britannia holds a trident in her right hand, symbolizing control over the seas, while her left-hand carries an olive branch and a shield displaying the Union Jack. This design signifies a desire for peace coupled with preparedness for defense.

    Over the years, the background field designs behind Britannia on the silver Britannia coins have varied. The 2016 coins featured a stippled or hammered background, while the 2017 coins introduced a sunburst design. The obverse background field has also changed, with the original coins having a stippled background and the 2018 coins featuring a new guilloche background design resembling a braided ribbon. This new design enhances the security of the coins against counterfeiting.

    About the British Royal Mint

    The Royal Mint is the oldest government mint in the United Kingdom and is responsible for producing British coins. The British silver Britannia is minted under the ownership of His Majesty's Treasury and holds a privileged contract to produce the country's coinage. Alongside its role in minting coins for domestic and international markets, the Royal Mint is a renowned provider of precious metal products.

    Throughout history, the Royal Mint has played a significant role in consolidating various mints, ultimately centralizing the production of coins for the Kingdom of England, Great Britain, the United Kingdom, and other nations within the Commonwealth. Initially located within the Tower of London for many centuries, it later moved to the Royal Mint Court until the 1960s.

    In response to the declining use of cash, the Royal Mint has been diversifying its business since 2018. The company has diversified its portfolio to include investments in precious metals, rare coins with historical value, and high-end collectibles like Tudor Beasts. As a result, it achieved an operating profit of £12.7 million during the fiscal year 2020–2021, indicating successful financial performance.

    In 2022, The Royal Mint announced its plans to construct a new facility in South Wales dedicated to recovering precious metals from electronic waste. This initiative aims to promote sustainability. The newly sourced gold from this process is already being utilized in a new jewelry division called 886 by the Royal Mint, commemorating its symbolic founding date.
