1997 Britannia Silver Set

Britannia is the enduring icon created by the Romans to represent a land and its people. Every year we make a new, original Britannia, inspired by different aspects of our nation’s spirit, but this 1997 Britannia silver set will always be the first-ever silver modern Britannia, making it highly sought after by collectors.

This silver Proof set recalls the start of ‘Cool Britannia’ in 1997, a time of cultural swagger as the nation rode a new found wave of confidence. In music, art and fashion – Britain led the way. Sculptor Philip Nathan’s original design channels the spirit of the warrior Queen Boudicca. Bold and fearless, Britannia is depicted aboard a chariot driven by two horses, a fitting image for the time.

Containing four different coins, one ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce, this Britannia silver Proof set is presented complete with a certificate of authenticity.
