Why order this 1 oz Silver 2009 £2 Great Britain Britannia?
In 2009, the Silver Britannia Series took a trip back in time to the third issue of the series, using that issue's reverse design. The series is younger than most of its modern counterparts, having started in 1997. Even so, it has made its way into the list of the world's most popular annual bullion issues. This coin was struck from 1 oz of .958 fine silver at the British Royal Mint. It was part of a mintage of 100,000 pieces. As of 12/23/19 according to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) Census figures, out of the mintage of 100,000, there are only 12 graded Mint State 69 with none grading higher! This piece is a true modern rarity!
Exquisite Britannia Design by John Bergdahl
On the obverse is Ian Rank-Broadley's famous right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Rank-Broadley shows the monarch wearing earrings and a tiara. The image has appeared on the coins of numerous countries and territories for over two decades and remains on several today. The name and title of the monarch, "ELIZABETH II D G REG FID DEF," are inscribed along the rim, as is the face value of the coin, "2 POUNDS."
John Bergdahl's reverse design shows Britannia riding a chariot. She holds her trident in her left hand and the reins in the right as two powerful horses drive on. Her name, "BRITANNIA," is inscribed at the bottom of the rim frame. The coin's metal content, "ONE OUNCE FINE SILVER," and date, "2009," are also included on the frame.
Nearly Perfect MS69 DPL with Britannia Label
This coin earned Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) second highest grade, Mint State 69. To receive that grade, a coin must appear perfect to the unaided eye. It was also certified Deep Prooflike, which means that it has deeply mirrored fields. Grading information comes provided on a Britannia label.
