95.8% Pure Silver
The largest and purest UK legal tender coin, the Britannia coin is struck by the Royal Mint from 1oz of 95.8% pure silver.
New Portrait of Britannia
The 2010 coin’s reverse portrays a new serene portrait of Britannia, the Roman goddess who came to personify Britain. Designer Suzie Zamit explains: “I wanted to portray Britannia as strong and courageous looking, but not overly warlike; more peaceful and protective. I have given her a Corinthian-style helmet and incorporated a lion on the design: the lion being the national symbol of courage - I wanted to emphasize the strong and watchful connotations - and this also links in with Greek and Roman coinage which display many animals.”
United Kingdom Legal Tender
Depicting the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse, the coin is issued as legal tender of the United Kingdom.
The coin is housed in an attractive gift box with a Certificate of Authenticity.
