Following the recent 2020 bullion coin releases in their Queen’s Beasts series, the 2 oz Silver White Lion of Mortimer, 1 oz Gold White Lion of Mortimer, and 10 oz Silver Falcon of the Plantagenets, the Royal Mint has released their 2020 1 oz Silver Britannia Bullion coin for immediate purchase. The Royal Mint is the first major sovereign mint to release 2020 dated bullion coins, and they are available to buy now at www.BGASC.com
Investors may purchase the 2020 1 oz Silver Britannia individually, in Unopened Mint Tubes containing 25 coins, or in a mint-sealed “Monster Box” of 500 coins. The 1 oz Silver Britannia bullion coin contains 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver, has a face value of £2 (GBP) and is approved for Precious Metals IRAs.
The Britannia is a stunning British bullion coin issued by The Royal Mint since 1997. Starting in the year 2013 and onward, the Silver Britannia is produced with .999 fine silver (prior to 2013 Britannias are .958 fine.) The image of Britannia, the female personification of the Island of Great Britain, has appeared on UK coinage for almost 2,000 years.
Britannia first appeared on the coins of the Emperor Hadrian over 2,000 years ago. As the Roman Empire expanded, conquered provinces were personified with female figures; a means to establish order and create a sense of unity.
Restored to British coinage in 1672 during the reign of Charles II, she’s appeared on the coins of every subsequent monarch. Reassuring and resolute she’s a rallying point come crisis or celebration, an embodiment of our national pride. Instantly recognisable all over the world, Britannia resonates with international investors, a trusted symbol of the quality of British minting.
The Royal Mint is proud to present the 2020 Britannia coin featuring Philip Nathan’s classic design. Standing firm in the eye of the storm, she displays an unyielding resolve. Since it was chosen to adorn the very first Britannia bullion coin in 1987, it has been acclaimed as a modern masterpiece.
