Introduction

Tavex is proud to present the flagship silver coin of The Royal Mint - the 1-ounce British Britannia Silver Coin. Nearly 2,000 years ago, a figure was shaped to symbolise a nation and its people. The Romans imagined a noble, graceful warrior and placed her on coins with the name Britannia, the new province they had claimed. Britannia has been reimagined many times as she has appeared on the coins of every British monarch from Charles II through to Her Majesty The Queen. The artists of each age have depicted her in ways that reflect the ideas and style of their time. Through every incarnation, Britannia has taken on more layers of meaning and has come to embody the spirit of a nation.

With a lower price point than their gold counterparts, Britannia silver bullion coins are a great option for those that prefer more metal for their monetary assets. Its lower price point also makes it extremely easy to sell and liquidate if desired.

History

For more than 1,000 years The Royal Mint has innovated to create coins that are both beautiful and secure. In 2021, Britannia, the symbol of Britain, leads the way to redefine security in the bullion market, the embodiment of this drive for the very best in design and security. This latest evolution of an icon takes Philip Nathan’s acclaimed interpretation of Britannia and adds four groundbreaking security features to create the most visually secure coin in the world. These additions both decorate and protect the coin, just as the micro-text that borders the design states – DECUS ET TUTAMEN, or AN ORNAMENT AND A SAFEGUARD. In the lower left-hand of the design, below Britannia’s flowing gown, is a trident to represent her naval history. As the viewer changes their perspective this trident becomes a padlock, emphasising the coin’s secure nature. Surface animation behind Britannia reflects the movement of waves, and fine details like the Union Flag on Britannia’s shield have been highlighted by tincture lines.

This is the only silver coin to carry the new security details. These features are also available on the 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz and 1/10oz fine gold editions of the coin.

Key Features

  • Four advanced features take visual security to the next level.
  • A latent image changes from a padlock to Britannia’s famous trident.
  • Surface animation brings the background of sparkling waves to life.
  • Micro text gives both decoration and protection – ‘an ornament and a safeguard’.
  • Britannia’s shield bears the Union Flag accented with tincture lines.

The Royal Mint is one of the oldest and most respected government institutions of Great Britain. Its long operating history, by some estimates over 1100 years, and coupled with its production of many of the world’s most famous coins, like the gold sovereign, has contributed to making it one of the best known and renowned mints in the world. Since 1279 when the mint established its operation in the Tower of London, it has been responsible for the production of coins of the United Kingdom. Its reputation for excellence and trust was further reinforced when Sir Isaac Newton became Master of the Royal Mint. During his tenure at the Royal Mint, he was responsible for moving the British pound to the gold standard.

Today the Royal Mint is not only responsible for minting coins used for circulation in the UK, but is likewise producing official coinage for more than 60 countries in the world. However, the most important and renowned coin ever to come out of its minting presses has without doubt been the sovereign gold coin which even today is being produced at its minting facility in the town of Llantrisant, Wales, UK. The accuracy and quality of the modern gold sovereign coin is the same as it was two hundred years ago, containing 22 karats of fine gold and weighing exactly 7.98805 grams. The popularity of the gold sovereign has likewise not changed, as confirmed in 2014 when the Royal Mint ran out of 2014 sovereign gold coins due to exceptional demand. The gold sovereign is without doubt one of the foremost gold coins ever to be produced and the fact that almost 100,000,000 sovereigns gold coins have been minted since 1957 is a testament to their excellence and trustworthiness. The reputation of the gold sovereign coin as “the chief coin of the world” will live on for centuries, as savvy investors will always prefer to keep a portion of their wealth in gold coins which are secure, liquid and trustworthy.

Obverse

The obverse features the fifth effigy portrait of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.  The bust is surrounded by the text 'D. G. REG. F. D. ELIZABETH II'. The D G REG is a shortened version of the Latin phrase “Dei Gratia Regina”, meaning “By the Grace of God, Queen.” The F D stands for “Fidei defensor” which is the Latin version of the Queen’s title as “Defender of the Faith”, given to the monarch as the Supreme Governor of the Church of England.

 

Reverse

The reverse features Philip Nathan’s acclaimed interpretation of Britannia - the female graceful warrior, who was shaped to symbolise the British nation and its people by Romans nearly 2,000 years ago. In the lower left-hand of the design, below Britannia’s flowing gown, is a trident to represent her naval history. As the viewer changes their perspective this trident becomes a padlock. Surface animation behind Britannia reflects the movement of waves, and fine details like the Union Flag on Britannia’s shield have been highlighted by tincture lines. The micro-text that borders the design states – 'DECUS ET TUTAMEN', meaning 'AN ORNAMENT AND A SAFEGUARD'.
