2021 – The new 1 oz Silver Britannia
The Silver Britannia contains one troy ounce of silver giving it a face value of £2. It is incredibly popular as it features Queen Elizabeth II in its obverse side and the warrior goddess Britannia on its reverse.
The combination of the two give the coin a unique meaning combining an extensive representation of Britain’s history alongside its present royal standing. With a face value of £2, the 2021 1 oz silver Britannia is one of Britain’s largest legal tender coins and, as such, is VAT free within the EU and Capital Gains Tax (CGT) exempt in the UK.
New for 2021, the Britannia incorporates new security features including a latent image, surface animation, tincture lines, and micro text incorporated into the image of Britannia.
