The 2021 Britannia coins are the first Royal Mint bullion coins to feature new, high-tech security features.
The coins feature a latent image, tincture lines, micro-text and surface animation to ensure they are some of the most visually secure bullion coins on the market.
British silver bullion Britannia coins were introduced in 1997. Up until 2013, the coins were struck from Britannia silver (0.958 fine). In 2013, this changed to 0.999 fine silver.
These coins have a face value of £2 and contain one troy ounce of silver. We believe we are the best place to buy silver Britannias in the UK with our bullion prices hard to beat and a huge selection of backdated Britannia coins.
This is a great opportunity to purchase investment silver at low prices. These one ounce silver coins are sold on a marginal rate scheme known in the industry as the 'special scheme'. This means that when we sell second hand silver you will only pay VAT on the dealer's margin.
The obverse of the coin features the Jody Clark portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. It is the fifth coinage portrait to be used on UK coins.
The text reads:
ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 2 POUNDS
The reverse design is the iconic 'standing Britannia' by Philip Nathan. It shows Britannia holding a trident and shield. The text reads:
BRITANNIA 2021 1oz 999 FINE SILVER
This 2021 silver coin has the addition of new security features. These include a small latent image on the bottom-left. Acting as a hologram, it changes between a trident and a padlock, depending on the angle the coin is held.
A micro-text border is also used. It says "DECUS ET TUTAMEN", which translates to “an ornament and a safeguard".
The field now features surface animation - micro-waves which create lines, showing a pattern in the background. Tincture lines have been added to show colours and patterns on the metal.
