The 1 oz silver Britannia from the Royal Mint of England features Jody Clarke’s portrait of Elizabeth II on the obverse (front side) and a guilloche pattern in the background. The reverse displays Philip Nathan’s interpretation of Britannia, inspired by the Celtic Queen Boadicea. With a trident in one hand, a shield displaying the Union Jack and an olive branch in the other, and a Corinthian helmet on her head, Nathan’s figure holds connotations of both peace and war.

Since 2020, these coins are the only silver bullion coins so far to incorporate the Royal Mint’s four latest security features:

  • A background pattern designed to mimic waves’ movement on the obverse side makes the coin more difficult to counterfeit, as do the additional lines added to Britannia’s shield
  • A holographic spot displays either a trident or a padlock depending on the angle of view
  • Added Latin text, Decus Et Tutamen engraved around the coin’s inner ring

These features make the 2020 and later silver Britannia coins exceptionally secure and highly resistant to counterfeiting efforts.

The 1 oz silver Britannia boasts a silver content of 0.999 fineness, or 99.9% purity, and a face value of £2. (From 1997 to 2012, the purity was 95.8%.) With fascinating historical figures on each side and highly advanced anti-counterfeiting measures from one of the oldest mints in the world, the 1 oz silver Britannia is an investor’s favorite and valued addition to any collection of silver bullion coins.

1 oz British Britannia silver coin highlights:

  • Variety of reverse designs from Royal Mint's top artists, though the classic Standing Britannia design is most common
  • Groundbreaking visual security including visual animations to deter counterfeiters
  • Purity of 0.999 fineness or 99.9% pure silver (2013+), or 0.958 fine (1997-2012, also known as "Britannia silver)
  • Issued by one of the world’s oldest and well-established mints
  • Backed by the UK government and accepted as legal tender within the UK (£2 face value)
  • Your order will be fulfilled from our on-hand stock at time of fulfillment, and may contain duplicate year/design coins

*We pack individual coins in plastic sleeves for protection before shipping. If you order 10+ of the same coin, we’ll secure them in protective tubes before shipping.  Your order can contain a coin from any year during the run, including the current year.

About British silver Britannia coins

The Royal Mint of England has issued these coins since 1997. In 2014, the Mint misstruck approximately 17,000 coins with the wrong obverse side, the only instance in which the coin’s traditional iconography was not present. Once located inside the Tower of London, the Royal Mint is now based in Wales.

Please note that, despite the considerable variety of designs through the years, for the last decade the Royal Mint has stuck to Philip Nathan's classic Standing Britannia design. Most of our on-hand stock will consist of the Standing Britannia design in a variety of years, again, mostly from 2012-2021.

  • 2000: 81,301 coins minted with classic standing Britannia (Philip Nathan)

  • 2007: 100,000 coins minted with a seated figure of Britannia, with large shield bearing the Union Flag (Union Jack), with a lion at her feet, and what looks like the white cliffs of Dover and a sailing yacht in the background. (Christopher Le Brun)

Her eastward looking gaze alludes to Britain's role in the EU. (Design by Suzie Zamit)

BullionMax offers free shipping when you spend over $min_freeship_cart. We have no minimum order requirement; however, orders under $min_freeship_cart will be charged a shipping fee of $9.95. 


How long before you ship my order?
Once your payment has cleared, we will begin processing, packaging, and shipping your order. How long this takes varies based on your payment method, the size of your order, and your specific products. Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email confirmation, with a link to find your shipment tracking information on your account page.


Do you ship internationally?
No, not at this time. 


How do you prepare packages for shipment?
All your purchased products are packaged under video surveillance to ensure quality control and packages are carefully and discreetly wrapped in generic corrugated boxes. 


How do you ship my order?
We ship via Registered/Insured U.S. Postal Service and UPS in discreet, secure packaging. Each package is fully insured and may require a signature upon delivery. Packages take 1-10 business days for delivery. We’ll send your tracking number by email when your order ships. 


Is my order insured while in transit?
Yes, BullionMax fully insures all of its shipments. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, it will be covered by our insurance policy.
However, we will not accept responsibility if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery services to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature, or if you have given the carrier instructions to leave your package with anyone other than the addressee. This includes but is not limited to a building manager, neighbor, a business mailroom, drop-off location such as Mail Boxes, etc., The UPS Store, the Military Postal Service, etc.
Additionally, we will not assume responsibility for packages that are signed for by apartment/complex building management, a business mailroom, the Military Postal Service, or any person(s) that are not the addressee listed on the order. When we ship to you, if metals are lost or damaged in transit, it is our responsibility to pursue any claim with the insurance company. If we determine the package is lost or damaged, we file a claim.
We reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our discretion.


Can you ship my order to my post office box?
No, we cannot ship to a post office box. 


Do I have to sign for my shipment?
Packages we ship may not require a signature for delivery. Expedited shipping, whether via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service, requires a signature for delivery.


Do you ship to U.S. territories?
We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.


What does “No Will Call” mean?
All UPS shipments ship with a “No Will Call” restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted. UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.


Where do you ship orders from?
All orders will ship from our warehouse in Los Angeles, California.  We conceal the return address on all packages so as to not hint at the contents of the package.


Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?
No, we do not. The costs of shipping to these states are extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments to Alaska and Hawaii.


Do we ship to P.O. Boxes?
No, we do not. Sorry.


Do you ship to UPS store locations?
No. UPS 3-Day Air service excludes shipments to UPS Stores, as well as Alaska, Hawaii and APO addresses.


My package appears to have been damaged or tampered with. What should I do?
We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with because the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to BullionMax for inspection. 
If you have taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact call us at (800) 729-3202 during normal business hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday – Friday within 48 hours for further instructions. Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours from signature or delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.


What happens if my order is lost in transit?
We see very few delivery issues with our carriers, but sometimes delays do occur. In those situations, we appreciate your patience to wait a little longer for your package (at least 7 business days) before contacting us. Should the package not arrive, an investigation of the shipment is required before any order is reshipped or refunded. We may ask you to file a police report if it appears loss is due to theft or tampering. Your assistance speeds up the investigation and the sooner we complete it, the sooner we can resolve the missing order.
