2017 Britannia 20th Anniversary One Ounce Silver Proof Coin

BR17SO 2017 Britannia 20th Anniversary One Ounce Silver Proof Coin Boxed
from
£100.00
Silver proof 2017 20th anniversary one ounce Britannia coin from The Royal Mint. Britannia is the female personification of the British Isles and she’s had an enduring presence on our money, first featuring on coins in Roman times. In 1987 she got her own range of UK bullion coins, issued first in gold and later in silver from 1997. These high purity, precious metal coins are popular with investors as well as collectors, the latter attracted to their changing designs. The 2017 anniversary proof edition is a particular favourite and perhaps the most creative depiction of Britannia yet. The work of British-born artist, Louis Tamlyn, the design switches our Britannia’s flowing robes for a map of Great Britain, blurring the line between the warrior goddess and her homeland. She wears her corinthian helmet pushed back on her head and clutches trident and shield, standing ready to defend our shores against a backdrop that displays a stylised Union Jack. A tiny trident mint appears to the right. It’s a fresh take on the spirit of our nation and a fitting celebration of the 20th anniversary of this coin series. Tamlyn’s Britannia is paired with Jody Clark’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II to the obverse, introduced in 2015. Like all 1oz Britannias, this one has a face value of £2s. It’s true value, however is tied both to it’s silver content (31.21 grams of .999 fine silver) and its limited edition status. Just 7,500 of these proof Britannias were issued in 2017, boasting a fine finish, achieved with multiple strikes of hand prepared dies. You’ll receive your 20th anniversary Britannia in its original presentation box from The Royal Mint with an information booklet and a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed.
