The Britannia Silver coin is one of the best-selling coins in the UK and has been since it was first issued in 1997, ten years after the original Gold Britannia.
Each year, collectors and investors eagerly await the release of the new Britannia and the demand for the 2020 1 oz Silver Britannia is likely to be as high as always.
The reverse of the 2020 1 oz Britannia silver coin features Philip Nathan’s famous ‘standing Britannia’. The classic design depicts Britannia in classical gown, hair windswept and holding the famous shield and olive branch. The waves lapping at her feet depicts its strong maritime links.
The coin’s obverse bears the Jody Clark portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II against the sunburst background. The background not only makes the design wonderful but also acts an extra measure against fraud and counterfeit.
The portrait on the obverse of the coin is known as the ‘fifth portrait’ and was created in 2015 for the State Opening of Parliament. Her Majesty was 88 years old at the time and for this event, she chose to wear the glittering King George IV State Diadem crown and the Diamond Jubilee pearl drop earrings, these are beautifully captured in this pure .9999 1 oz silver coin.
The 2019 Silver Britannia Coin is the largest and purest legal tender coin in the UK and is, therefore, Capital Gains Tax-free (CGT Free).
The Britannia coin is one of the lifelong symbols of Great Britain and Year 2017 marked the 20th Anniversary of the Silver Britannia. The weight and strength of the coins are verified at the centuries-old annual Trial of the Pyx.
