  • Description:

    The reverse side of the 2002 silver Britannia reveals a strongly poised goddess. Britannia is a goddess who represents a British island that was once ruled by Rome. Once Rome left, Britain kept the female symbol and has used her every since whenever referring to battle and war. Britannia wears a long, loose toga that gracefully is flowing in the wind. Hear head bears the weight of a Corinthian helmet, a helmet made of bronze containing a long projection to protect the neck in battle. In one hand, she holds her weapon of choice, a trident, and the other holds a delicate olive branch. These two objects represent Britannia's strength in battle and her desire to seek peace. The background of the reverse is a frosted finish but Britannia herself is in proof-like quality. The writing around the edge of the coin says, "Britannia 2002," and "one ounce fine silver." The obverse design is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, sitting at a side angle so her profile is highlighted. Her tight curls wear the infamous tiered crown and her delicate features insinuate a smile. The coin's denomination, "2 pounds," is inscribed around the rim along with the shortened saying, "Red Fid Def," that means Defender of the Faith.
