The 2016 1 oz British Silver Britannia Coin is being offered in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Each coin contains 1 troy ounce of .999 pure silver and has a legal tender face value of £2 in the UK. Produced by the prestigious Royal Mint, these coins are the newest addition to the popular Silver Britannia coin series which was initiated in 1997. As a preventive measure, every coin will be shipped in either a plastic protective coin sleeve or its original sealed tube of 25.
Gracing the obverse of each coin is the eponymous Britannia. She serves as the feminine embodiment of Great Britain and is depicted in a classical toga and a war helmet as she stands vigilantly poised for battle upon the shores of her country. In one hand, she wields a trident in honor of Britain’s naval prowess. In the other hand, she holds an olive branch and a round shield bearing the union jack. These items represent the navy’s duty to protect the peace of their nation by any means necessary. Encircling this poignant image is a series of text, which includes the coin’s weight, purity, country of origin and mintage year.
Proudly emblazoned across the reverse side of the coin is yet another powerful female who has come to embody Great Britain, Queen Elizabeth II. In this effigy, the benevolent monarch is portrayed in profile, regally attired in her trademark diadem. Framing this uncanny likeness are the queen’s name; the coin’s denomination and the Latin abbreviation for “Dei Gratia Regina,” which translates into “Queen by the Grace of God.”
