In 2013 the Royal Mint issued its first ever £10 Silver Britannia, a huge 5 ounce coin. Britannia is shown wearing a Corinthian Helmet holding an owl on her knee, it is the symbol of intelligence. She is sitting on a chair holding a trident, but there is one little problem. She is dressed or partially dressed in an old fashioned way. That means that one of her breasts has been left exposed. The Ian Rank-Broadley bust of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse. The first release of this large silver coin was sold to a marketing company in the United States, which had them slabbed. This preserves the coin from getting fingerprints, authenticates the coin and grades it. They graded the coins (£10 face value) as being Proof 69 out of 70 and better yet they are Ultra Cameo, which is about as good as you can get. The quality us outstanding. In the slab it is a large and handsome presentation piece, I can see them displayed in the slab on your mantle piece. Anyone who sees it will be impressed, how could they not? A huge beautiful Britannia in silver in an impressive display case and the price is right. Originally sold by the Royal Mint at £420.00. Coincraft’s price is just £295.00 which saves you £125.00!
Following on in the Royal Mint’s tradition, it has issued a New 2020 Silver Britannia which has been issued with the Chinese New Year privy mark on the edge. Each Silver Britannia contains a full ounce of silver and in the past, these special countermarked pieces have quickly sold out and we have not been able to replace them. It seems that once sold by our wholesaler they are gone. We managed to secure a limited amount of pieces with the countermark on the edge for the Chinese Year of the Rat. The coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and the first time we have been able to offer them. Supplies are limited and we don’t know if we will be able to get any more.
We have just had our first supply of the NEW 2020 Silver Britannia. Each coin contains 1 ounce of pure silver, 31.1 grams, is in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition, and has a face value of £2.00. A beautiful and most reasonable series and one that you can add to your collection at a realistic price.
The Britannia silver series is usually only available in Proof condition, except for the one ounce silver. But in 2006 the Royal Mint issued the 1/10th Silver Britannia in Uncirculated condition. As far as I know, this is the only year that they issued this coin in Uncirculated condition. So it is a Very Important type coin. I have selected this coin as my ‘Special Offer of the Issue’. First because it was only issued for one year and secondly and most importantly because I can sell it for such a cheap price. Each coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and struck in Sterling Silver, they only ever issued this coin in Uncirculated for one year. So it is a Very Important type coin. You can have this 1/10th Britannia only issued in 2006 for just £7.95. At this prices it really is the Special Offer of the Issue!
The Royal Mint has been issuing the Silver Britannia for some time, but only now have did we have time to see what we have in stock. One of the coins we have is this 2019 Silver Britannia featuring an oriental-themed design pattern framming the figure of Britannia on the Reverse of the coin.
2017, Silver Britannia, struck in 999 fine Silver. Matt and brilliant Prooflike on the reverse and the obverse has the pebble dashed surface. They have redesigned the reverse, getting rid of the pebble dashing behind Britannia and replacing it with rays from the sun. It looks much better. Each coin contains one ounce of pure silver and has a denomination of £2, they are full crownsized and rather handsome. Don’t miss out on this new design of the Silver Britannia, we think you will like it.
We have been able to get first strikes of the New 2019 Silver Britannia coins. They are 1 ounce of 999 Fine silver and in Prooflike Uncirculated condition, they are beautiful and choice and wouldn’t they make excellent holiday gifts? You have Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and a standing figure of Britannia on the reverse. They look almost like a Proof and remember these are early first strikes and just beautiful. Be one of the first to have the New 2019 Silver Britannia, we were only allowed 300 pieces, so please get in quickly if you want one in time for the holiday season. Of course, we will have more later, but these are early strikes and we have them now!
