Great Britain Coins

Great Britain Coins have plenty of things to offer collectors - the Royal Mint has been in operation for around 1,100 years. From pennies to Sovereigns and Britannias, the major coins from Great Britain are easily recognizable.

One of the most popular British coins is the Silver Britannia. This coin provides government backed silver bullion, like the US American Silver Eagle. It shares another similarity with the Silver Eagle as well, it has had a number of collectible versions released over the years. Collectable issues of the Silver Britannia, like the proof version, tend to have very low mintage figures and excellent designs. The Silver Britannia is known for its changing proof design and it is made of .999 fine silver. While older Silver Britannias weren't as popular due to their lower fineness, the modern version is an excellent choice for collectors or bullion stackers.

Like the Silver Britannia, the Gold Britannia is an excellent choice for collectors or stackers. Proof versions of both coins come with presentation packaging from the Mint. Graded versions certainly have higher values, but which one is right for you depends on your goals. The standard size for Britannia coins is 1 Troy oz., but both the gold and silver coins are available in a variety of sizes. Some of the more popular unique sizes are 5 oz. and the low fractional sizes which could be as small as 1/40 Troy oz.

The British Sovereign is also well-known and a fine choice among coins from Great Britain. The British Sovereign is a gold coin that always depicts St. George and the dragon. The modern British Sovereign is very impressive visually, and there is plenty of history behind this coin.

Great Britain produces some of the finest and most valuable World Coins that MCM has to offer.
