  • Description:

    Lowest mintage of the silver Britannia series, the 2001 Britannia is one of just 44,816 minted. The Royal Mint began their gold Britannia collection in 1987 and decided to celebrate the 10 year anniversary with creating a silver bullion collection. Being nothing less than of great reputable standards that are usually connected with the Royal Mint, the Britannia is a beautifully crafted coin and is just perfect for any coin collection. Each coin is packaged in a coin flip for protection during travel. Guaranteed by the Royal Mint, the Britannia is .999 fine silver and is in brilliant uncirculated condition but exhibits proof-like qualities as well.

    Falling under an odd year, the 2001 Britannia's reverse design doesn't reveal a standing goddess but rather an active one. Britannia is serenely walking next to a male lion, her one hand slightly touching its back and the other occupied by her powerful trident. She is clothed in her usual draped garb and sporting a bronze helmet to protect her in battle. There is another object with the odd couple; it looks like a door or some sort of entryway. Different markings line the background of this silver coin, almost like it's another language. The words, "Britannia, 2001," and "One ounce fine silver," are circled around the edge of the coin to prove the coin's authenticity. The obverse shows an older Queen Elizabeth II portrait that was designed by Ian Rank-Broadley and is used on all Commonwealth of Nations' coins. Her head is turned sideways, enhancing her lovely profile and bears the weight of an elegant crown. Inscribed around her are the words, "Red Fid Def," a Latin saying that represents the Defender of the Faith, and the coin's denomination of "2 pounds." If you are looking to buy silver online and are not sure which collection to start first, let us recommend the silver Britannia coin series. With its ridiculously low mintages and intricately designed faces, you can't go wrong!
