2016 British Silver Britannia
2016 British Uncirculated Silver Britannia
The 2016 British Silver Britannia is brilliant uncirculated with a gorgeous "proof-like" finish. For the fourth time since 1997, the coins are struck from 1 ounce of 0.999 fine silver. Previous years were struck from 0.958 fine "Britannia" silver. Each coin is legal tender in England with a face value of £2.
The stunning design, by award-winning sculptor Philip Nathan, depicts Britannia standing proudly, trident in hand. Britannia's image is steeped in history, having been featured on a coin of every British monarch since the reign of Charles II.
The Silver Britannia is arguably the most beautiful of all the world one ounce silver coins and is also very hard to find since few are exported to the United States. In fact, mintage is limited to only 100,000 coins world-wide! Compare this tiny mintage to the typical silver eagle annual mintage of 20 to 30 million coins.
