Britannia 2014

Only 2,500 coins are available in this Limited Edition Presentation that must meet international demand.

Britannia

Britannia - the changing face of Britain - has represented the nation for almost 2,000 years. Synonymous with the British coinage for centuries, Britannia appeared on a flagship gold coin struck by The Royal Mint and named in her honour in 1987, she has remained ever since. Britannia coins have over time become a showcase for British artists – the design selected for the Britannia of 2014 was created by Jody Clark, a talented Royal Mint engraver.

This new interpretation is contemporary, yet rich in imagery and fine details that simply gleam when perfected by The Royal Mint’s Proof finish. In a double show of British pride Britannia is joined by the lion, tamed at her feet with its tail protectively swept around her robes, the pair an enduring display of British courage and strength. These elements are exquisite in one ounce of 999 fine silver on these wonderful coins all presented beautifully in a display case with booklet and Certificate of Authenticity. Only 2,500 of these coins are available in this Limited Edition Presentation.

While the history books reveal a wealth of famous men – kings, leaders and even mythical saints – females have long been celebrated on the coins of Britain struck by The Royal Mint, each revealing a story, immortalising the influential women forever.

The obverse of coins have traditionally featured the portraits of monarchs, Her Majesty The Queen can be seen on Britain’s circulating currency, the current iconic coinage portrait created by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. The queens that have gone before her were also captured on the coinage of their reigns, not solely in their official effigy. A young Queen Victoria graced wonderful £5 pieces in the nineteenth century, her coinage portrait on the obverse and an attractive depiction of her as Una on its reverse, leading a lion inspired by Edmund Spenser’s poem, The Faerie Queene. The resulting combination is undoubtedly one that blends the feminine with the masculine – the strong queen taming the unleashed might of the lion, a powerful display of strength and courage.

Stunning Britannia

By Peter,

The one ounce silver Britannia is absolutely stunning. This is the most beautiful Britannia yet and as always struck to perfection by the mint. My only complaint is the packaging. It comes in a sturdy brown cardboard outer, but the inner printed cardboard wrap is not as nice as previous coins.
