  • Description:

    Revered as a goddess, Britannia has often offered Britain solace and comfort, especially in times of strife. She has been featured on Britain coins since the Roman Emperor in A.D. 119. The Royal Mint has returned to famous sculptor, Philip Nathan's, original design that began the Britannia series in 1997. The Royal Mint is also starting a new British tradition and designing each spectacular coin for this year and after to contain the impressive original design of Britannia. In a maritime-themed design, Philip Nathan places Britannia on the reverse side, her trident aloft and her shield resting by her feet. Her billowing gown flutters in the wind, revealing her slender frame. Her head bears the weight of a Corinthian helmet, bronzed with an extension protecting her neck. The prestigious coin also presents the coin's purity, weight, and year of mintage on the reverse as well. As an effigy, Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse of this silver Britannia. The famous side portrait that has been used for many coins is perfected on the silver Britannia. The Queen is accompanied by the coin's legal tender, "2 pounds," and a Latin saying, ""Red Fid Def." It is appropriate that the Queen and Britannia share a coin together since both are honored as Defenders of Britain.

    Like the other Britannias, your 2012 silver Britannia is .999 fine silver and is perfectly struck in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, creating a sheen finish reminiscent of proof quality. In fitting with true British tradition, it is customary to offer a silver token as a gift for special occasions and celebrations. To whoever receives the gift will have good luck and many blessings on their life. The silver Britannia series can be the ideal gift to wish someone well on a new journey.
