Britannia - A History
 
Britannia - the changing face of Britain - has represented the nation for almost 2,000 years. Synonymous with the British coinage for centuries, Britannia appeared on a flagship gold coin struck by The Royal Mint and named in her honour in 1987, she has remained ever since. 
 
Britannia coins have over time become a showcase for British artists – the design selected for the Britannia of 2014 was created by Jody Clark, a talented Royal Mint engraver.
This new interpretation is contemporary, yet rich in imagery and fine details that simply gleam when perfected by The Royal Mint’s Proof finish. 
 
In a double show of British pride Britannia is joined by the lion, tamed at her feet with its tail protectively swept around her robes, the pair an enduring display of British courage and strength. 
 
These elements are exquisite in one ounce of 999 fine silver on these wonderful coins all presented beautifully in a display case with booklet and Certificate of Authenticity. Only 2,500 of these coins are available in this Limited Edition Presentation.
 
While the history books reveal a wealth of famous men – kings, leaders and even mythical saints – females have long been celebrated on the coins of Britain struck by The Royal Mint, each revealing a story, immortalising the influential women forever.
 
The obverse of coins have traditionally featured the portraits of monarchs, Her Majesty The Queen can be seen on Britain’s circulating currency, the current iconic coinage portrait created by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. 
 
The queens that have gone before her were also captured on the coinage of their reigns, not solely in their official effigy. A young Queen Victoria graced wonderful £5 pieces in the nineteenth century, her coinage portrait on the obverse and an attractive depiction of her as Una on its reverse, leading a lion inspired by Edmund Spenser’s poem, The Faerie Queene.
 
The resulting combination is undoubtedly one that blends the feminine with the masculine – the strong queen taming the unleashed might of the lion, a powerful display of strength and courage.

Silver Britannia have been released each year beginning in 1997, when a silver proof set was offered. 
 
In 1998 and in all subsequent even-numbered years the reverse design has depicted a standing Britannia figure. Beginning in 1999 and continuing in odd-numbered years, a series of alternate, non-repeating depictions of Britannia have replaced the standing figure on the reverse. 
 
Starting in 2013, the proof versions of the coin will feature a different design each year, while the bullion version of the coin will always feature the classic standing Britannia. While mintage was limited prior to 2013, in 2013 and after mintage of the bullion version of the coin is unlimited based on demand.
 
Some 2014 silver Britannia coins were struck with the incorrect obverse as there was a mix up during the manufacturing process with the 'Lunar' Year of the Horse coins from The Royal Mint, as both coins were to the same fineness and specification,[6] and similar but not identical obverse sides. 
 
It is thought that there are around 17,000 examples with the mis-strike, which have been dubbed the 'Mule Britannia' These coins have fetched substantial premiums on online auction sites.
