Silver Britannia Coins were introduced in 1997 using a silver alloy known in England as Britannia silver. It was introduced in 1697 by an Act of Parliament that established 95.8% silver content as the standard for silver British coins with the remainder of the alloy containing copper, in most cases. In 2013, the Silver Britannia bullion coin was increased to .9999 fine silver content.
The obverse of 2021 1/10 oz Silver Britannia Coins in this tube of 16 coins features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. This effigy was created in 2015 by Jody Clark. Just 33 years old at the time, Mr. Clark became the youngest Royal Mint Artist to ever create a monarch portrait for the mint.
On the reverse side of 2021 Silver British Britannias is a depiction of Britannia. Her effigy is captured in a left-facing design with her body front-facing. Her left hand holds an olive branch as it rests on a shield with the Union Jack. She wears a Corinthian helmet on her head. Her right hand clutches a trident that she uses to defend the realm by controlling the seas.
