BRITANNIA 2023 1OZ SILVER COIN
StoneX Bullion is pleased to present this stunning Britannia coin containing 31 grams of fine silver and featuring the beautiful Britannia design by Philip Nathan.
In 2021,Britannia coin led the way with the British Mint creating four groundbreaking security features. It employed the team behind the “world's most secure coin, the UK 1 pound coin” and asked them to create four elements in order to take visual security to the next level.These elements make it incredibly hard to forge and are:
A latent image which changes from a padlock to Britannia’s famous trident
A surface animation which brings the background of waves to life
A micro text which provides both decoration and protection
The union flag of Britannia is accented with tincture lines
On top of these modern and amazing security features, you can also find a beautiful design which was created by sculptor Philip Nathan in 1987.
Britannia is the feminine personification of Britain; she is renowned for her beauty and strength and is an enduring icon that has been used for 2,000 years.
Here, she is standing upon the rocks in a long flowing robe.In her right hand, Britannia holds her trident, while her left hand holds an olive branch and rests upon a shield, representing peace and protection. All these elements reinforce her strength and power.
On the obverse of the coin, and since 2016, features the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed by artist Jody Clark, at age 33, he is the youngest artist to have achieved this honour. As the longest reigning British King or Queen in history, Elizabeth II was the first monarch to receive the privilege of a fifth portrait appearing on the nation’s coins. We now know that it will be the last portrait of the late Queen Elizabeth II and it makes this coin even more valuable. The design is particularly striking, representing a very dignified Queen, elegant and gracious.
Britannia silver coins are British bullion coins issued by The Royal Mint since 1997. The Silver Britannia 1oz coin is often a good investment for UK-based private collectors, as they are CGT exempt in the United Kingdom.
This coin is a must have in everyone’s collection as it is incredibly popular and expected to sell out.
But what really makes it so special is that it features the last portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The 1 oz silver coins are expected to sell out quickly so get your copy today on StoneX Bullion!
