2023 Britannia Two Ounce Silver Proof Coin

BR23S2 2023 Britannia Two Ounce Silver Proof Coin Boxed
from
£192.50
Limited edition of just 1,000: 2023 silver proof two ounce Britannias. These Britannias are the first coins of this type to feature the new portrait of King Charles III on the obverse by Martin Jennings and also have a unique reverse which is only seen on this year's edition. 1987 saw the first gold Britannias released by The Royal Mint, which were primarily intended as an investment bullion coin, but silver proof editions have been unveiled annually for the coin collector market from 1997 onwards. Since 2013, proof Britannias have had a one-off design for each year, with this 2023 edition featuring an aquatic-inspired design by Jonathan Olliffe. Britannia's role is as a defender of our shores, and Olliffe's engraving deviates from the usual equine subject matter by rendering the warrior goddesses' horses as scaled seahorses, rearing above the waves. She is seen placed in the chariot, with Union Jack shield and iconic trident. This is paired with the official UK coin effigy of King Charles III, which was designed by Martin Jennings. Each Britannia is struck several times using hand-polished die during the production process, giving the coins an appealing contrast between the frosted devices and mirrored surfaces. Prior to 2013, silver Britannias had a fineness of 95.83%, but now they're struck in 99.9% fine silver. Specifications are a weighs 62.86 grams and a 40.00-millimetre diameter, with a face value of £5 / Five Pounds. Your CGT-exempt coin is issued in the original black presentation case with a numbered certificate of authenticity from The Royal Mint.
