Why purchase this authenticated First Day of Issue 2018 1 oz. Silver Proof Britannia with an Oriental Border?
This 2018 proof release of the Royal Mint's Silver Britannia series features an intricate Oriental border, similar in style to those struck on the 19th century British trade dollars. Measuring 38.61 mm in diameter, the stunning proof is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, its mintage limited to just 2,500 coins.
Classic Britannia Design
An elegant, Oriental pattern frames the standing figure of Britannia on the reverse. Created by Philip Nathan in 1987, Britannia is posed standing steadfastly against a powerful gale grasping a shield, olive branch and trident. Inscriptions include "ONE OUNCE 999 SILVER," "BRITANNIA," "2018" and "NATHAN."
The obverse depicts the profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, sculpted by Royal Mint Designer Jody Clark. The inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "D.G. REG. F.D." and "2 POUNDS" surround the image.
