For over 1,100 years, The Royal Mint has blended a rich tradition with cutting-edge innovation to craft coins that are both aesthetically pleasing and renowned for their security and reliability.
Since 100 B.C., Britannia, symbolizing a female warrior, has served as an iconic national emblem for the United Kingdom. She has also become the contemporary face of bullion coins, a role she has held since 1987.
On the 2024 Britannia 1 oz silver coin reverse side, you can admire the legendary depiction of Britannia, skillfully crafted by Philip Nathan. Britannia stands boldly at the center of a tempest, radiating unwavering determination. In her right hand, she proudly wields a trident, a symbol of her strength, while her left hand gracefully clutches an olive branch, symbolizing peace. Encircling this captivating design are the inscriptions 'BRITANNIA 2024', '1 OZ', and '999 FINE SILVER'.
Beneath Britannia's elegant robe lies a trident, serving as a tribute to her rich naval history. This trident cleverly transforms into a padlock when viewed from different angles, underscoring the coin's inherent security. Encircling the design, the inscription 'DECUS ET TUTAMEN' ('An ornament and a safeguard') adds a meaningful touch.
The dynamic surface of the silver coin, positioned behind Britannia, mimics the motion of the sea, adding an element of movement and life to the design. Meticulous attention to detail is evident, with tincture lines highlighting features such as the Union flag on Britannia's shield, symbolizing the enduring strength of Britain.
The obverse side of the 2024 silver Britannia proudly displays the inaugural coinage portrait of His Majesty King Charles III, exquisitely crafted by the skilled hand of Martin Jennings. In adherence to a long-standing tradition dating back centuries, where each monarch faces the opposite direction to their predecessor, King Charles III's likeness gazes to the left, in contrast to Queen Elizabeth II's customary coinage portraits, which depict her facing to the right. Surrounding this regal portrait are the inscriptions '2 POUNDS' (denoting its legal tender status in the UK), 'CHARLES III', and 'D.G. REX. F.D.' (which translates from Latin to 'By the grace of God, King, Defender of the Faith').
The 2024 Britannia 1 oz silver bullion coin is composed of one troy ounce of 999 fine silver, representing the highest level of silver purity available from The Royal Mint.
Britannia's image on this silver coin is universally recognizable and holds significant appeal to investors worldwide. She stands as a symbol of trust, signifying the exceptional quality associated with British minting.
