Why order this 2021 £2 Great Britain 1 oz Silver Britannia?

The Silver Britannia is among the youngest of the world's annual silver bullion issues. Even so, since its debut in 1997 it has become a leading choice among collectors. Like its predecessors in the series, this coin captures the pride and majesty of the issuing nation, however this 2021 edition boasts four new security features to help prevent counterfeits.

  • This coin is £2 legal tender in Great Britain.
  • This coin was struck at the Royal Mint from 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
  • This piece boasts security features which include a a picosecond inscribed wave-pattern, micro text border, and holographic security mark.
  • The coin will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Powerful Britannia Design by Philip Nathan

Obverse: The coin's obverse features a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. The monarch wears her Royal Diamond Diadem and earrings. Her name and an abbreviation of her Latin title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D," are inscribed along the rim, combining with the face value of the coin, "2 POUNDS," to encircle the portrait.

Reverse: Philip Nathan's Britannia on the waves design features on the reverse, as it frequently has throughout the history of the series. Britannia stands tall on the waves, holding her trident in one hand and balancing a shield that bears the Union Jack with the other. This year, The Royal Mint added tincture lines to the shield, part of the new security features, which also serves to highlight its design. Inscriptions in a rim frame note the name of the coin, "BRITANNIA," its date, "2021," and its weight and purity, "1 OZ 999 FINE SILVER."

Additional security features on this face include a wave-patterned background that almost comes to life when you move it, and a security mark that appears inside a circle, that reveals a design when tilted. Finally, a laser-etched micro text inscription repeats inside the main border, reading "DECUS ET TUTAMEN," which is Latin for "an ornament and safeguard."
