Full Description

Released by the 1,100 year old Royal British Mint, the 2014 1 ounce Silver Britannia continues with the technological legacy set by the previously released coin. Featured on the 2013 coin is a fantastically unique mark denoting the Year of the Snake, the privy mark, showing a coiled snake is stamped along the side of the coin. 

First released in 1997, the 1 ounce .999 fine silver coin has become a popular investment opportunity for those looking to add the precious metals to their assets. The coin is comprised of one full ounce of .999 fine silver, and has a face value of £2.

Obverse

Shown on the Obverse is the right-ward facing portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1997 and shows the monarch with her classic short hairstyle, and a diamond encrusted crown. Around her are the inscriptions showing her name, "D. G. REG. FID. DEF" (which means Elizabeth II by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith), and below the denomination of the coin is noted.

Reverse

The Reverse images shows a modern representation of the classic construct: Britannia. Britannia was used by Roman and Greeks to describe the geographical region known as Great Britain today, and the name became synonymous with the personified goddess of the same name. First minted in 1987, the standing figure was created by Philip Nathan and shows the goddess standing along the shore, facing out to sea with a trident in one hand, and an olive branch and shield in the other.

Truly unique in the series, the 2014 Silver Britannia is the second coin to feature the magnificent Lunar Calendar privy mark along the side of the coin. Depicting a stallion, mid gallop, the privy mark shows several horses running along the rim of the coin.
