The 2021 1oz Silver Britannia Coin is here with a fantastic new design from The Royal Mint, UK.
Silver Britannia is a well-recognised silver coin throughout the world and this year the British Royal Mint has changed the design and added four new security features to further deter counterfeiting.
Release of the New 2021 1oz Silver Britannia
In October 2020 the mint unveiled the newest update of the beloved Britannia coin. Philip Nathan’s design of the Britannia still forms the central part of this very desirable coin together with additional elements to enhance the coin’s value and security.
The first enhancement to the reverse side of the coin is the updated background wave design which appears when light is reflected at a certain angle on the coin. The second addition to the Britannia Silver Coin is the inclusion of smooth tincture lines on Britannia’s shield which now bears the Union Flag. The third and one of the most important element is a holographic image of a padlock in the bottom left, when the coin is tilted this changes between a trident and a padlock. Last but not the least, micro-text in Latin phrase ‘DECUS ET TUTAMEN’ meaning ‘An Ornament and a Safeguard’ is etched along the inner rim of the coin.
The obverse of the 2021 Britannia Silver 1oz coin features the bust of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and inscriptions include “Elizabeth II”, D.G. REG F.D” meaning Queen by the Grace of God and also shows the currency value of 2 Pounds however the actual silver value of the coin is much higher than this denomination.
All the above changes to the Britannia 2021 silver coin have further enhanced the coin’s appeal and its look and we are certain this will be a very popular coin with collectors, stackers, and investors alike.
