The Silver Britannia has the same design as the Gold Britannia, which was first launched in 1987.
The original design for both coins was created by sculptor Phillip Nathan and depicts the heroic personification of Britain, Britannia. She stands braced against a strong gale, holding a shield that displays the Union Jack and a trident that symbolizes England’s important naval history. A new accent was added to the 2017 design; it is a burst of sun light radiating from behind Britannia.
The obverse is now struck with an effigy of King Charles III, which was created by renowned British sculptor Martin Jennings and has been personally approved by His Majesty. In keeping with tradition, the king’s portrait faces to the left, in the opposite direction from Queen Elizabeth II. The Latin inscription surrounding the effigy reads “CHARLES III” “D” “G” “REX” “F” “D” which stands for ‘Charles III, by the Grace of God, King, Defender of the Faith’.
Following the success of the Gold Britannia, the Royal Mint launched a one-ounce Silver version in 1997. The first year, a small mintage of the Silver coins were only issued as proofs. The silver coin’s fine metal content has increased over time. From 1998-2012, these Silver bullion were struck in .958 fine Silver, then, starting in 2013, the Britannia was increased to .999 fine.
