  • Description:

    Following the 2002 Britannia's foot steps, this 2004 Britannia catches the observer's attention by enhancing the Britannia figure on the reverse side of the coin. Her body has proof-like features, while the background has a frosted finish to it. Britannia is a British island that has been personified as a woman. When Rome ruled the island, they referred to the island as Britannia but once they evacuated, Britain changed Britannia to a goddess. She is presented on the coin as a warrior, with a trident in one hand and an olive branch in the other. Her cascading robe fits her slender, yet powerful frame and her head bears a strong, bronze helmet. The coin's purity, "one ounce fine silver," and "Britannia 2004," are inscribed on the reverse as well. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II graces the obverse side of the Britannia. We see the Queen from a side angle, with her lovely facial profile intricately detailed. Her lips are slightly parted, giving off a slight smile, and her famous curly hair is adorned with a tiered crown. The Queen is accompanied by the Latin saying, "Red Fid Def," meaning Defender of the Faith, and the coin's legal tender value, "2 pounds."

    Beginning in 1997, the Royal Mint, the main manufacturer of coins in the United Kingdom, began minting silver Britannia coins. This silver series is a sister collection with the gold Britannias that began in 1987. The Britannia is the United Kingdom's version of a silver eagle, Mexican libertad, or a Chinese panda. Each Britannia is .999 pure silver and is in brilliant uncirculated condition. The coins are packaged in individual flips for their protection in transit. This series has become increasingly popular among avid coin collectors and silver investors everywhere. With only 100,000 2004 Britannias minted, this is an opportunity you won't want to miss!
