Collectors and investors all over the world are thrilled to own these impressive pieces of the British coinage. British silver coins are some  of the most outstanding silver coins on the precious metals market.

The most popular British silver coin is definitely the elegant Silver Britannia coin. The symbol of Great Britain’s glorious history and majesty, Britannia, is depicted on the reverse of the coin as standing and holding a trident and the British shield while wearing a Corinthian helmet. The image of Britannia is the symbol for the “Britannia” name given by the Roman soldiers over 2,000 years ago to the British Isles and its inhabitants. However, today Britannia is known as the ‘goddess of sorts’ and the guardian of the British Islands. The obverse of the coin features the profile picture of the Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Another famous British silver coin collection is the Lunar series. Their design celebrates the Chinese Year Zodiac and includes 12 coins stuck with the representation of each Chinese zodiac animal on their obverse. The first released coin from this series was the Year of Horse depiction in 2014, followed by the Year of Goat design in 2015 and the Year of Monkey in 2016. The remaining 9 animal zodiac symbols (the rooster, the dog, the pig, the rat, the ox, the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon and the snake) will be minted during the next 9 years. Each animal of the Royal Mint Lunar coins was designed by the remarkable Chinese-British printmaker Wuon-Gean Ho. The first editions of these series are very desired by collectors and investors because they are an outstanding gift for special occasions. Most of the British Silver coins are sold separately, in sealed tubes of 20 coins or in monster boxes of 500 coins.
