Introduced in 1997, the silver Britannia was the first European silver investment coin. Following the success of its predecessors, such as the silver Maple Leaf and the silver American Eagle, the introduction of a British coin was an obvious choice.
The Britannia silver coins initially had a silver purity of 0.958 which changed to an increased fineness of 0.9999 pure silver back in 2013. The original design began with sculptor Philip Nathan in 1987 on the gold Britannia.

The other side of the silver Britannia coin contains the fifth official portrait of the Queen, with this version introduced to the range in 2015.
