The 2023 release of British Silver Britannia coins was the first in the history of the program to both feature two different releases of the coin and the first to feature a new monarch. The passing of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II resulted in the Royal Mint issuing Elizabeth II Britannias and new Charles III Britannias in 2023.

British Silver Britannias were introduced by the Royal Mint in 1997, a decade after the debut of the series with gold coins in 1987. Unlike the Gold Britannia, Silver Britannias originally featured alternating reverse depictions of Britannia. It wasn’t until 2011 that the series stuck to just Philip Nathan’s 1987 depiction of Britannia as found on the gold coins.
In the history of the Silver Britannia, Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was the only monarch to feature on the coins. Elizabeth II was featured in three portraits on the coin: 1985 bust by Raphael Maklouf, 1998 bust from Ian Rank-Broadley, and 2015 bust by Jody Clark. With her passing in September 2022, King Charles III ascended to the obverse by early 2023.
For the obverse design of the 2023 1 oz Silver Britannia, you will find an image of His Majesty King Charles III. This first-ever portrait of the new king shows Charles III in left-profile relief and does not include a crown.
In the reverse design field of 2023 British Silver Britannias, you will find Philip Nathan’s elegant portrait of Britannia. It captures her figure in front-facing relief with a trident in her right hand, a Union Jack shield under her left hand, and a Corinthian helmet on her head.
These 2023 1 oz British Silver Britannia Tubes are available with a total of 25 coins inside, each of which is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The plastic tube offers a total of 25 Troy oz of .999 pure silver with 25 individual 2023 Silver Britannias inside.
