CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Britannia, Bullion

Britannia coins are British bullion coins issued by the Royal Mint in gold since 1987 and in silver since 1997. These original Britannia silver coins contain one troy ounce (1 oz) of silver and have a face value of £2. Silver Britannias are also issued in fractional sizes of one-half, one-quarter, one-tenth, 1/20th and 1/40th of a troy ounce and with face values of £1, 50p, 20p, 10p and 5p respectively. There is also a five-ounce coin of face value £10.

After 2013, the proof versions of the coin feature a different design each year, while the bullion versions of the coin - such as this one - have the classic, or "definitive" Standing Britannia reverse design.

The bullion Britannias dated 2022 were released in October 2021, with a number of new security features (introduced the year before), making them "the most visually secure coin in the world". These additions both decorate and protect the coin, just as the micro-text that borders the design states - DECUS ET TUTAMEN, or "an ornament and a safeguard". In the lower left-hand of the design, below Britannia’s flowing gown, is a trident to represent her naval history. As the viewer changes their perspective this trident becomes a padlock, emphasising the coin’s secure nature. Surface animation behind Britannia reflects the movement of waves, and fine details like the Union Flag on Britannia’s shield have been highlighted by tincture lines.

This is the only silver coin to carry these new security features but they are also available on the one ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce fine gold editions of the coin.

Obverse
United Kingdom / Silver Ounce 2022 Britannia, Bullion - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (her effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait").

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the effigy is the monarch's legend: ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 2 POUNDS ·. Translated from Latin: Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith, followed by the value and denomination in English.

The obverse has a textured background ("guilloche" geometric pattern).

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 2 POUNDS ·
Reverse
United Kingdom / Silver Ounce 2022 Britannia, Bullion - reverse photo

At centre, the standing figure of Britannia - the female personification of Great Britain, facing left, with flowing robes, wearing a crested Corinthian helmet pushed back to reveal her face. She is holding a trident in her right hand; her left hand rests on a shield decorated with the cross of the Union Jack, and holds an olive branch. She is standing on a rock, with sea waves in the background.

Around, interrupted by the trident, the inscription ' BRITANNIA ' 2022 ' 1 oz ' 999 ' FINE ' SILVER '.

The artist's surname NATHAN (Philip Nathan) is in relief in small letters on the rock under Britannia's feet.

There are four advanced security features built into the design:
- in the lower left, a latent image changes from a padlock to Britannia’s famous trident when viewed from a different angle
- "surface animation" brings the background of sparkling waves to life as the coin is moved
- micro text gives both decoration and protection - the words DECUS ET TUTAMEN (from Latin: "an ornament and a safeguard") are repeated multiple times in the inner rim between the central circle with the design and the outer rim with the inscriptions
- Britannia’s shield bears the Union Flag accented with tincture lines - thin lines (also known as "heraldic colours") representing the colours of the flag.
