The depiction of Britannia on British coinage can be traced back for centuries and this one ounce silver coin not only features the 2015 incarnation of this iconic figure but is among the first Britannia coins to bear the fifth definitive coinage portrait of The Queen, making them an excellent memento of a vintage year for coinage.
Revisiting the icon’s two millennia of history, the artist, Antony DuFort, has introduced nautical elements in his design, such as the masted ship on the horizon, recalling the Cartwheel Penny of 1797. This design, while taking inspiration from convention, has a contemporary feel, where each fine detail has been perfected in the stunning Proof finish.
This impressive coin, struck in one full ounce of 999 fine silver, is presented in a stylish case with a booklet that reveals Britannia’s naval origins. The coin is also accompanied by a certificate that confirms it is one of just 3,000 to be released in this Limited Edition Presentation.
