The Britannia Silver Coin is crafted by the Royal Mint, a trusted mint for over 1100 years. The Royal Mint has come to be known as a mint that produces beautiful coins to commemorate key historical figures and events.
The Britannia Silver Coin is a stunning testament to the quality and attention to detail that has made the mint so popular. Since 1987, customers have been awed by Phillip Nathan’s depiction of Britain’s revered Britannia.
What makes these coins so special is the beautiful art of two of the best coin designers, Jody Clark and Phillip Nathan. Their designs are striking in a silver bullion coin.
The obverse features Queen Elizabeth II lovingly designed by Jody Clark. Clark’s rendition really captures her regal nature with great detail from the crown on her head to her dangle earrings. Engraved around her portrait are the initials “D.G. and “REG” which are abbreviations for the Latin phrase “By God’s Grace, Queen.” To the left of her portrait is “2 Pounds” reminding us that this is legal tender backed by the British Government.
On the reverse side of the coin we see Phillip Nathan’s very popular Britannia design. Nathan’s depiction of Britannia has her wearing a long robe, armed with a trident in her right hand and holding a shield with the Union flag on it in her left. Also in her left hand is an olive branch. All together this Britannia design represents the strength of Britain with an eye toward peace.
Introduced in the 2021 coin, the 2022 Britannia Silver Coin has four anti-counterfeiting measures integrated into the design.
As you look at the reverse side of the coin, you will see a smaller trident than the one Britannia is holding. When you turn the coin a little you will see the trident turn into a padlock. Additionally, the waves in the background are another security feature.
When you move the coin, the waves look like they are moving. The design of the flag on Britannia’s shield is another anti-counterfeit measure. The flag has tincture lines that highlight the Union flag. Micro-text around the border of the coin makes for another security feature.
Here you will see “Decus et Tutamen” which is Latin for “an ornament and a safeguard” seemingly referring to the fact that the micro-text is a decoration and a security measure.
All of these features combine to defend the value of the coin.
Each bullion coin is handled with care and packaged for safe shipment to your address.
With the backing of the British Government, and the fine craftsmanship of the Royal Mint, you can rest assured that this will be a beautiful coin of the utmost quality.

I received my second order ever on 4/2/22. To my pleasant surprise I received the coins within in a tube which was protected very well. I really appreciate that. This company has the best pricing I have come across on the web.

If you don’t have any of these Britannias in your stack, you should consider adding some. It is an excellent example of quality minting.
Good price, quick shipping.

These are beautiful coins. The security features add to their beauty, too. Premiums are higher than other bullion but less than US and Canandian mints. Quite pleased with them.

I was always buying my silver from my favorite online source, but one day I saw Jake from Hero Bullion talking on YouTube about the British 1 oz Silver Britannia Coins. It was then I decided to give Hero Bullion a chance by purchasing some of these 2022 British 1 oz Silver Britannia Coins. I must say, these coins are absolutely beautiful in every way imaginable. The quality of the minting and the attention to fine detail is amazing. I believe I just found a new source for buying my silver. Thank you to Jake and Hero Bullion. I will be returning to your site for more silver.

I got 5 of these coins as a first time purchase from Hero to evaluate their service. Coins arrived as described in BU condition. I find their pricing to be very competitive and will be ordering more soon

The coin is better looking in person and I’m glad Hero Bullion has these available, because this coin is worth every penny. The detail of the safety features embedded in this coin are top notch.

All of my shopping efforts – online and local – lead me to Hero Bullion and my desired 1oz Britannia coins. The pricing was the best. Importantly, to me, as per the description, my 25-lot came in a sealed original British Royal Mint tube. If I had to critique this transaction, I could not do so, as it was flawless. Hero, you have earned a new – and returning – customer. One who appreciates and requires complete satisfaction. You achieved that, and I sincerely thank you.

When I started to look for silver, these were top of my list, and I’m so glad I got them when I did. Sad event with the Queens passing, and the cost of coins with her image shot up a bit. Condolences to the UK.
The design is great on both sides, and has a brilliant shine. Every order (depending on premium) I’m purchasing these.
I found out about Hero Bullion from a YouTube channel “Silver Dragons”. If I had not watched that I would have not know this company exited.
