Silver Ounce (1 oz), Coin Type from United Kingdom - detailed information

Silver Ounce (1 oz), Coin Type from United Kingdom (issued 1997 - )
Coin TypeSilver Ounce (1 oz)

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues bullion coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The one ounce (1 oz) silver coins are denominated as two pounds.

Initially, these were only of the Britannia type, but in 2015 the Royal Mint started to use the format for coins with other types of reverse designs.

The coins are legal tender but are not intended for circulation. They are targeted at bullion investors or collectors who appreciate the special editions as pieces of art.
