The Silver Britannia gold coin is made in the same design as the Gold Britannia coin produced in 1987. Sculptor Philip Nathan’s design shows the courage of the British people. In the design, Britannia is standing against a strong wind while holding a trident on her right hand and a shield on her left. The shield she is holding shows the Union Jack which is a symbol of the English naval might.

After the success of the gold Britannia coin, the royal mint started producing 1 Oz silver Britannia coin in 1997. In this first year, a small number of coins were issued as proof that the Royal Mint was producing silver coins. Over the years, the content of fine silver in the coins has gone up. For instance, in 1998-2012 the silver coin that was minted had a fineness of .958. However, Britannia silver coins minted from 2013 had a fineness level of .999.
