This year the annual release of The Britannia One Ounce Silver Brilliant Uncirculated Coin comes at a unique time, as Philip Nathan's masterpiece commemorates its 30th anniversary. His style appeared on the very first Britannia coins released in 1987. While other Britannia coins bear a new design each year, this one ounce silver coin constantly carries Philip Nathan's representation - a consistent classic. The award-winning design has actually been struck on the reverse of this 999 fine silver coin, while the obverse features the fifth effigy of Her Majesty The Queen produced by Royal Mint coin designer Jody Clark.

Britannia has represented the nation for almost 2,000 years and has ended up being part of Britain's identity; a cultural sign of strength and pride. The figure has evolved through the centuries, much like the country she represents, and has been illustrated in numerous forms. She is constantly effective and strong, yet composed and tranquil-- a watchful guardian.

In 1987, Philip Nathan became the winner of a competition to discover a design for a brand-new bullion coin. The coin was called Britannia, a powerful name that would quickly stick out in an international market.

The artist was motivated by Britannia's past, however not confined by it. Many analyses of Britannia reflect ancient Greek mythology, however Philip Nathan wished to create a more realistic and raw character inspired by Boudicca, commonly called Boadicea. His reimagining of Britannia puts her on the shore, windswept, in a classical dress, with a spear in hand and the waves at her feet.

Each year-dated coin is completed to Brilliant Uncirculated standard and boxed with a brochure that describes the artist's inspiration, and a certificate validating its low issue of just 10,000 editions.
