Purchasing British Silver Britannias
The British Silver Britannia is a bullion coin that has been issued by the Royal Mint since 1997. Unlike many government-issued silver coins, the Britannia is available in many sizes other than just the common Britannia, containing exactly 1 troy ounce of silver. Though the 1 ounce silver Britannia remains by far the most common denomination, fractional versions of ½ ounce, ¼ ounce, and ⅒ ounce are also minted. All sizes of Silver Britannia have a nominal face value, have their purity and silver content guaranteed by the Royal Mint, and are legal tender within the United Kingdom.
Obverse: Queen Elizabeth II in profile. Design date: 2009.
Reverse: In even-numbered years a standing Britannia figure is displayed. In odd-numbered years, a unique, and non-repeating depiction of the Britannia figure is featured.
Between 1997 and 2012 the silver Britannia was produced with a silver fineness of 95.8%, known as Britannia Silver. Starting with the 2013 Silver Britannia, the Royal Mint has matched standard practice and Silver Britannia bullion coins are now 99.9% silver.
