With a history that stretches back to Roman times, Britannia is the female embodiment of a nation that has evolved though the centuries. In 1987, sculptor Philip Nathan created a bold interpretation of the icon for a new bullion coin. Today that design is regarded as a modern classic, and the Britannia coin is recognised around the world as one of The Royal Mint’s flagship offerings.

Philip Nathan’s Britannia stands steadfast amidst crashing waves, beside a shield bearing the Union flag and wearing a classic Corinthian helmet; she holds an olive branch representing peace. The award-winning design is as beautiful as ever, struck in 999 fine silver and finished to The Royal Mint’s bullion standard.

The coin is also available as a ten-ounce and quarter-ounce fine silver edition alongside a one ounce fine platinum edition. There are also one ounce fine silver and one ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce fine gold editions of the coin available with four new additional security features.

  • Struck in a tenth-of-an-ounce of 999 fine silver
  • The smallest silver coin in the Britannia range
  • Features Philip Nathan’s world-famous Britannia design
