Britannia 2018 Silver Brilliant Uncirculated Coin
Wednesday, 22 November 2017 | Gareth
Unfazed by the eye of the storm, Britannia stands with unyielding willpower, securing her ideals and values; a reassuringly familiar existence through times of upheaval and change. Since Britannia initially appeared on Royal Mint Bullion coins in 1987, Philip Nathan's Britannia has been acclaimed as a contemporary masterpiece. Influenced by the warrior-queen Boudicca, frequently referred to as Boadicea, his design shuns classical Greek conventions and is rather marked by a raw realism. Britannia may be surrounded by signs of war, but the trident and shield disguise the fact of her objectives - clutched in her left hand is an olive branch of peace. The 2018 Brilliant Uncirculated Britannia is a consistent timeless and one of the most popular coins from the Royal Mint. Include Britannia to your collection or mark a special celebration in the year ahead with a thoughtful and original present. Presented boxed with a pamphlet detailing the inspiration behind the artist's creative process, and a certificate verifying its limited release of just 7,000 editions.
