2020 Silver 1 oz Britannia Coin - Oriental Border.
Struck in .999 fine silver, these 2020 Britannia silver bullion coins come with the oriental border. They are exempt from capital gains tax for UK residents and are sold on the special VAT scheme.
In 2018, the Royal Mint started to produce Britannia coins with an 'oriental border'. These coin designs were inspired by the Chinese-themed banqueting room at the Royal Pavillion in Brighton, with the aim of them being to appeal to coin collectors in Asian markets.
British silver Britannia bullion coins were first introduced in 1997. Until 2013, the coins were struck from 0.958 fine Britannia silver. In 2013, this changed to 0.999 fine silver. The coins have a face value of £2 and contain one troy ounce of silver. The coins feature Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse, with Britannia on the reverse.
The obverse design features the fifth definitive UK coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. This portrait design was first released in March 2015.
The reverse shows the classic, standing Britannia designed by Philip Nathan. Britannia stands in front of a radiant sun, the design is partially contained within an inner circle.
The outer circle contains the legend:
