The British Britannia bullion coins were introduced by the Royal Mint starting in 1987 with the gold coins. From 1987 to 1996, only gold bullion options were available in the series. Starting in 1997, the Royal Mint offered the Britannias with an option to buy silver with a 1 oz coin as the primary choice.

British Britannia coins have some unique options not always offered in other bullion coin collections. The gold coins debuted in 1987 with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins. In 2013, 5 oz and 1/20 oz gold coins were introduced. The 1997 debut of the silver coins brought 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz silver as well. Just like the gold coin, in 2013 the silver coin gained 5 oz and 1/20 oz options.
Britannia first appeared on British coinage in the 1st century AD when the British Isles was a province of the Roman Empire. However, Britannia eventually disappeared from British coinage. She would return on a permanent basis in 1672 during the reign of King Charles II. Since that time, Britannia has appeared on coinage from the kingdom during the reign of all subsequent monarchs.
Queen Elizabeth II is visible on the obverse of 2020 1/10 oz Silver British Britannia Coins. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. This design is the fifth-generation release of the Queen’s portrait for use on currency and it was developed in July 2015 by Jody Clark.
Britannia is shown in the reverse design of the 2020 Silver British Britannias. Designed in 1987 by Philip Nathan, this powerful image shows Britannia standing with a Corinthian helmet on her head, a trident in her right hand granting her control over the seas, and a shield in her left hand with the Union Jack on it allowing her to defend the British Isles.
