Britannia is the female representation of Great Britain and has been the modern face of the silver bullion since 1997. The Britannia bar coin is recognized and trusted worldwide and is sought after by investors and institutions alike.
History of the 1 oz silver bullion coin Britannia 2022
For more than 1,100 years, The Royal Mint has created innovative coins that are both beautiful and safe. In 2022, Britannia, the symbol of Great Britain, leads the way in redefining security in the gold market and embodies the Royal Mint’s pursuit of the very best in design and safety. This latest evolution of the icon combines Philip Nathan’s acclaimed rendition with four breakthrough security features to create the most visually secure coin in the world. These additions decorate and protect the coin, just like the micro-text that frames the design says – “Decus et Tutamen”, which translates as “ornament and protection”.
In the lower left hand of the design, under Britannia’s flowing dress, is a trident depicting her naval history. When the viewer changes his perspective, this trident becomes a padlock that underlines the secure nature of the coin. The 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.
