Full Description

2016 brings the most recent installment in the 1 Oz. Silver Britannia series. Being the official silver bullion coin of the United Kingdom since 1997, its silver content, weight, and purity are all guaranteed by the Royal Mint, and the Silver Britannia is legal tender within the United Kingdom, with a face value of 2 pounds. Though also minted in fractional silver sizes of 1/2, 1/4, and 1/10 ounces, the 1 oz Silver Britannia is the most common denomination. Containing exactly 1 troy Oz. of silver of .999 purity, the beautiful Britannia is one of the outstanding silver coins on the market today, and one of the premier world silver coins featured on GMRGold.

Details of the 2016 1 oz Silver Britannia

The overall design of the Silver Britannia mirrors that of its famous cousin, the British Gold Britannia, which debuted exactly ten years earlier. Designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, the obverse depicts Queen Elizabeth II in profile, along with the monarch's name, titles, and the face value of the coin. Rare for a silver bullion coin, the reverse features a changing design. During every odd-numbered mint year, a new depiction of the iconic figure of Britannia is employed, with no two designs ever repeating. Even-numbered years use the standard Britannia design.

Investing in 1 Oz. Silver Britannia Coins

The Silver Britannia appeared somewhat late on the scene, first being minted in 1997. Due to the tremendous gains in the spot price of silver over the years, the Royal Mint bowed to the demand of buyers who invest in silver and today the Silver Britannia is one of the premier silver coins on the market. With its beautiful and stunning design, the Silver Britannia has attracted considerable numismatic interest from coin collectors and even from buyers looking for a great gift idea. Proof versions of the Silver Britannia are also manufactured for collectors.
