Silver Bullion

Silver Britannia Coins

The silver Britannia coin has been minted and issued by the Royal Mint since 1997 but appeared on Roman coins over 2,000 years ago. The Silver Britannia, or ‘Brit’ as it is known in the industry, features the female warrior holding a trident and a shield which displays the British flag, the design is now the most iconic bullion coin from the UK aside from the Gold Sovereign

The character originated from the Roman empire as the word ‘Britannia’ was a name given to Great Britain. Britannia featured on fifty pence circulated coins within the United Kingdom but due to the rise in special year coin designs on circulated fifty pence coins, the Britannia design is now more associated to precious metal bullion Britannia coins

Security Features

The Royal Mint claims that the 1oz Britannia is now the most visually secure bullion coin in the world, making it extremely difficult to counterfeit compared to bullion coins produced from other internationally recognised mints 

This is due to the addition of of micro-text, a security latent feature, surface animation when the coin is tilted as well as tincture lines which are all anti-counterfeit measures taken by the mint to protect investors

British History

The Britannia

Britannia will likely forever be featured on Great British currency. The figure has appeared on our currency for centuries and is now the center of the Royal Mint’s flagship bullion coins

1oz Silver Britannia coins are capital gains tax free, allowing investors to keep 100% of profits achieved on these coins. All 1oz Silver Britannia coins minted since 2013 are .999 fine, making them a minimum of 99.9% fine Silver. This is a minimum standard and does not mean that all Silver Britannia’s are not pure Silver Prior to this, coins were struck to a .958 finesse, making the coins 95.8% fine Silver. The coins still contain 1oz of silver due to a larger coin mass of 32.45g

Silver Britannia coins typically trade at a low premium given that, since 2013, the Royal Mint has adjusted mintage figures each year to meet demand. Silver is subject to a 20% value added tax charge in the United Kingdom which is automatically included in the prices that are seen on the Auronum website Silver Britannia coins are struck in 1oz and 1kg whilst proof versions have been produced in sizes between 1/40oz through to 2kg limited mintage coins
