The Royal Mint called Britannia has been issuing the investment coins for 30 years. Their design changes regularly, and there is no exception in 2019. You can admire a new relief on a silver coin made of one troy ounce.

The great nations of the world transfer their ideals, opinions and virtues into anthropomorphic symbols - the Russians have the loving Motherland, the French have the free Marianne, the Americans have the brave Uncle Sam and the British have the unbreakable Britannia. The character named after the colony of ancient Romans has the form of a graceful goddess armed with Neptune's trident, shield and Corinthian helmet. This mythical protector has been the symbol of the island kingdom´s strength and power for two thousand years. It became a cultural icon, encouraged the British propaganda in the war effort, embellished stamps and banknotes in both World Wars. Of course, it also became a coin theme…

Respected artist David Lawrence chose a classic theme with ancient spirit after several modern variations in recent years. The figure of Britannia with all its attributes was complemented by a lion as a symbol of courage. The obverse side of the coin belongs to the attributes of the issuer. These are the nominal value of 2 POUNDS (GBP), the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II., together with the text "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D" (Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith).

The silver coin wass embossed in polished quality brilliant.
