Britannia is the female personification of the British empire. Her name finds its origins in an ancient nickname for Great Britain. She has been a well-known figure since her first appearance on Roman currency under the rulership of Hadrian. She has an uncanny resemblance to Boudica. Her first official appearance on British currency occurred in 1672 when she graced the farthing. From that point onwards, she became a firm fixture in British currency.
For the obverse field of the 2002 1 oz British Silver Britannia Coin, the historic image of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II is featured. She is designed by the world-renowned engraver, Ian Rank Broadley who depicts her as an aged monarch in right-profile relief along with her iconic tiara. The inscriptions on this side of the coin include; ‘Elizabeth,’ ‘DG,’ ‘Reg,’ ‘Fid,’ ‘Def,’ and ‘2 pounds.’
For the reverse field of the 2002 1 oz British Silver Britannia Coin, a gorgeous woman is featured. The woman is named Britannia. She is gowned in a flowing gown along with a glistening, Corinthian helmet. She wields a mighty shield like it’s nothing along with a long, pointy trident like a true warrior of rich heritage. She looks off into the distance without fear or hesitation.
The coin will be delivered from our advanced warehouses in a plastic, protective capsule that preserves the freshness of the coin while offering a safe option for you to display it to admirers.
