Britannia Silver Coin
The Britannia silver coin was first issued by The Royal Mint in 1997 - 10 years after the gold Britannia coin launch - as the UK's official silver bullion coin. Initially the silver Britannia coins had a purity of 0.958 fineness (95.8%), a purity that soon became known as 'Britannia silver'. Since 2013 however, this was increased to full purity 999 fine silver (99.9%), making the silver Britannia a firm favourite with investors and collectors alike.
1oz Silver Britannia
The 1oz silver Britannia has fast become one of the most popular investment coins in the world, and is a firm favourite in the UK particularly thanks to its CGT-free status. Officially, the silver Britannia has a face value of £2 which is why it is exempt from any CGT upon sale, offering an excellent tax benefit to owners of this coin.
As the official bullion coin for the UK, the 1oz silver Britannia is mass produced by The Royal Mint, keeping costs as low as possible, and making it one of the cheapest silver coins available.
"Britannia" is an ancient name for Great Britain, and since the early centuries has been associated with Roman coinage. Britannia encompasses strength, power, leadership, femininity, peace and elegance. Learn more about this national figure featured heavily on British coinage over the years.
2017 celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Britannia and featured a refreshed version of Britannia to commemorate the occasion, and coins from 2021 onwards boast new, ultra-secure design features.
