Why purchase this 2017 Falkland Islands 1 oz. Silver Britannia Rules the Waves Reverse Proof?
This exceptionally designed proof struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver featuring the image of Britannia is issued by the Falkland Islands in celebration of the 35th Anniversary of the Falklands Liberation. After striking only 7,329 of the authorized 50,000 coin mintage, it was discovered that the Pobjoy Mint had produced the coin in violation of the Britannia trademark regulations, creating an unexpected low mintage variant of the release, bearing the motto "Britannia Rules the Waves." The remaining coins of the mintage will be struck without the motto.
Stunning Britannia image with controversial motto
The elegant helmeted image of Britannia grasping a trident adorns the reverse, beside a background of beautifully detailed cresting waves. Inscribed "BRITANNIA RULES THE WAVES," along with "1 CROWN," "AG 999 1 OZ" and the Pobjoy Mint mark.
The obverse features the Pobjoy Mint's exclusive effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, framed by the inscriptions "QUEEN ELIZABETH II," "FALKLAND ISLANDS" and "2017."
