Stunning limited edition coin cover issued to mark the release of the brand new 2021 £2 Silver Britannia coin
Britannia has been the patriotic symbol of strength and progress for our great nation for over 2,000 years, ever since the Romans invaded the isles and renamed them as the province of Britannia. Since 1997, the Royal Mint has issued a stunning new Britannia coin annually which has become a firm collector’s favourite – especially due to its intricate design. In 2021, to mark the release of the latest Silver Britannia £2 coin, a stunning limited edition coin cover has been issued.
The covers centrepiece features the latest one troy ounce 999/1000 silver coin. The reverse features the iconic portrait of Britannia holding a trident by Philip Nathan. For the very first time, the coin features additional anti-counterfeit measures which includes a holographic spot on the reverse, additional detail on Britannia’s shield, a second inner circle of Latin text and a micro detail wave background. The obverse features the latest definitive portrait of the Her Majesty the Queen by Jody Clark.
To perfectly complement the brand new Silver Britannia coin, this cover also includes the classic £10 Britannia Stamp issued in 1993 which is the highest face value UK stamp ever issued. The £10 stamp features a seated image of Britannia with the Union Jack on the shield. The stamp also displayed a number of new security features to help prevent forgery including the use of embossed braille for the very first time on a UK stamp. The stamp is cancelled on the 1st January 2021 with a specially designed handstamp, which sets in stone the low worldwide edition limit of 499 covers. To complete each cover, they are individually hand numbered.
The significance and history of Britannia in relation to our great nation and the low edition limit are two key reasons why the cover is in very high demand. Harrington & Byrne has managed to secure a small number of these attractive covers to offer today.
