Britannia coins were first issued by the British Royal Mint in 1987, when both gold and silver issues were released in a range of sizes. Silver Britannia coins have a nominal value of £2.00 in the United Kingdom, where they count as legal tender, but they are often traded at a higher price on the bullion market due to their collectible value and the fluctuating price of silver. This new Britannia Silver Coin was minted in 2016, and is the most recent version of the silver Britannia currently in circulation. It contains one troy ounce of silver, and the design portrays Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse side and the classic Britannia image on the reverse. Newly minted and highly collectible, this Britannia coin is the ideal gift.
