Why buy this 2 Pound British 2017 1 oz. Silver Britannia?
This 1 oz. Silver 2017 Great Britain 2 Pound Britannia continues a tradition that dates back to Roman times, when Britannia first appeared as a symbol of the nation on coinage. It was struck from .999 fine silver at the British Royal Mint, one of the world's best-know and respected coin producers.
Classic Britannia Design by Philip Nathan
For the second straight year, Jody Clark's effigy of Queen Elizabeth II wearing a diadem and earrings serves as the Silver Britannia's obverse. The face value of the coin, "2 POUNDS," and the Queen's name and title, "ELIZABETH II D.G. REG. F.D." are inscribed along the rim.
The reverse features the same Philip Nathan Britannia design that has appeared on the coin for the past five years. Britannia casts a powerful pose, supporting her Union Jack shield with one hand and holding her trident in the other. A radiating pattern makes its debut as the background, adding both elegance and security.
Virtually Flawless MS69 FR Grade
The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that it received this piece for grading within thirty days of its initial mint release by labeling it a First Release. They also gave it their second highest grade, Mint State 69, because they determined that the piece appears flawless to the naked eye but has at least one flaw that is visible under magnification.
