Lunar Horse mule 1oz silver Britannia, graded MS 70 PL. A sought after Royal Mint error coin from 2014. The reverse shows Philip Nathan’s classic standing Britannia, as intended. This design was created in 1987 for the first gold Britannia coins and has been a regular feature on them ever since. The obverse, however, has a very subtle error: it lacks the ‘denticle’ edge detail that can be seen around the rim of the reverse and on other Britannia bullion coins from the same year. This tooth is absent because someone at The Royal Mint mistakenly used the obverse die intended for the 2014 Year of the Horse Lunar 1oz silver coin. This 2014 Lunar had the same face value and inscription as the Britannia so the two would have been easy to mix up. Some 17,000 2011 mule Britannias were struck before the issue was identified and another 38,000 Year of the Horse coins bear the wrong reverse. In other respects these bullion error coins conform to the standard Britannia specifications: they are composed of 31.21 grams of .999 fine silver with a diameter of 38.61 millimetres. This example has been independently graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation as MS 70 PL (‘prooflike’).
