English Britannia

First introduced in 1997 then later upgraded to .999 fineness in 2013, the iconic Silver Britannia bears the current effigy of the ruling British monarch on the obverse while the reverse features a standing image of Britannia, the female warrior and symbol of England herself carrying legal tender status as £2 coins with higher intrinsic silver value. Mass-produced brilliant uncirculated versions satisfy bullion demand yet the Royal Mint also issues aesthetically enhanced proof and other collectible editions in limited quantities annually to drive demand alongside gold counterparts.
