The Britannia Series debuted in 1987 as the Gold Britannia Series. Both the gold and silver collections have gone through significant changes in the multiple decades the coins have been in production. While the silver coin has long come with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz silver coins, other features of the series have changed with time.
For example, when the Royal Mint first introduced the silver coins in the series in 1997, the silver content of the coins was unique. From 1997 to 2012, the British Silver Britannia was issued with 95.8% silver content. This level of silver fineness is uniquely known as Britannia silver, a standard for silver enacted by British Parliament in 1697 to replace the lesser 92.5% sterling silver. As of 2013, the coins feature .9999 pure silver.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse side of 2021 British Silver Britannia Coins. This effigy of the Queen is the latest fifth-generation portrait created in 2015 by Jody Clark. The design was developed for the Royal Mint to show the Queen aged 89 with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head.
Britannia is shown on the reverse face of 2021 1/10 oz British Silver Britannias. This depiction of the female allegory for Britannia was created in 1987 for the release of the gold coins by Philip Nathan. The design shows Britannia standing along the southern coast of England with an olive branch in her left hand as it rests on a shield that bears the Union Jack. Her right hand clutches a trident.
