Silver Britannia Privy Mark

The Royal Mint produces many coins featuring a privy mark. These can appear on the reverse side of the coin, somewhere around the image, or etched into the rim of the coin. Typically these markings are used to commemorate a significant event or anniversary.

Since 2013, the Royal Mint has also produced special edition Britannia coins sporting a Privy Mark edge. These coins are an extra feather in the Mint's cap, and the privy rim offers collectors a slightly unusual take on the classic Britannia - similar to the alternative Oriental Border Britannia coins.
