This coin set has six of the eight one-year type silver Britannia coins issued in 2018 (except the five-ounce piece and the 1 kilo silver), presented in a Royal Mint case with a booklet that charts Britannia’s journey through history to the present day. The coins feature an original design by acclaimed artist and popular coin designer David Lawrence
The Royal Mint says:
"Britannia’s story is woven into the very fabric of the nation. For 2,000 years Britannia has personified the British Isles and the values she upholds. A legacy of the Roman invasion, even today Britannia is all around us: think a brand name, a boat or a rousing patriotic song, an enduring symbol of national pride we rally behind come crisis or celebration. For 2018, designer David Lawrence, whose designs include contributions to our five-year series commemorating the centenary of the First World War, steers Britannia in a different direction, returning to a more classical feel inspired by Ancient Rome."
