The personification of Britain for nearly two millennia, Britannia first appeared on coins during the reign of the Roman Emperor Hadrian (117-138AD). She was recalled to Britain’s currency by King Charles II in 1672 following the Restoration of the Monarchy after the English Civil Wars. Britain’s iconic warrior maiden has appeared on the coins of every British king and queen since – including Queen Elizabeth of course!

Having appeared on the penny from the start of the reign of Elizabeth II, and then on the 50 pence coin during the decimal era, Britannia has featured on precious metal coinage since the 1980s. Official British legal tender, the 2021 £2 Britannia 1oz Silver Brilliant Uncirculated Coin is a fine addition to this highly sought after series.
