Since she first appeared on coins in the Far East in the nineteenth century, Britannia has become a trusted symbol to investors in the Far East – instantly recognisable as the face of the British Trade Dollar.
For 2018 The Royal Mint is excited to issue a special Britannia coin, celebrating our historic relationship with Asia. Struck in fine silver, Britannia is flanked by an ornate oriental border inspired by the Chinese-themed rooms at Buckingham Palace and the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.

Silver continues to be desired, as it has been for centuries, for both its beauty and value, Britannia coins are an affordable way to appreciate its precious qualities. Royal Mint Britannia coins are the most popular silver investment coin in the UK for a number of different reasons. Britannia coins are highly regarded, competitively priced, are CGT Exempt and do not lose their production value over time as there is always a demand for the coins. They are well known and often traded privately as well as through bullion dealers, giving you plenty of options when you want to sell.
Perhaps the most important factor to consider when choosing UK coinage vs coins made in other countries is that UK bullion coins produced by The Royal Mint are UK legal tender and hence Capital Gains Tax free. CGT benefits might be considered when choosing what form of metal to buy as by purchasing UK coins eligible for CGT exemption you can avoid paying tax on the profit you make when you come to sell. As Legal Tender coins are exempt from CGT they will have no impact on your annual tax allowances either, which many investors find reassuring.
The UK government assures the weight and purity of each coin it produces, Britannia coins are designed and packed for mass storage and safe transit, providing exceptional convenience for all bullion coin buyers. Single Britannia coins will be sent in plastic sleeves or capsules because when bought individually they are often intended as beautiful gifts or to add to a collection. Multiples of 25 coins will be supplied in new Royal Mint coin tubes. Multiples of 20 tubes (500 coins) are sent in sealed Royal Mint Monster Boxes ideal for those who want to buy at best value and are happy to stash them away for the price to mature. Insured delivery is included in our prices, alternatively customers are welcome to collect their purchase by strict appointment only.
The price of silver Britannia coins closely tracks the metal price due to their pure silver content, these coins are highly recognisable and highly liquid, there will always be someone waiting to buy them from you when you are ready to sell. Silver Britannia coins are currently issued with an unlimited mintage, if you are looking for limited edition UK coins we also stock other series including the UK Lunar and Queen's Beasts which are aimed at coin collectors as well as investors.
