STANDING BRITANNIA, Britania series, 5 oz silver £10, Proof PF69, 2013

Britannia has been featured as a symbol on British coins for centuries. The “Britannia” investment series has been issued in gold since 1987 and in silver since 1997; There is a “definitive” depiction – used on bullion coins (“Brilliant Uncirculated” grade), as well as one-year designs like this one – used on proofs produced for collectors. From 2013 the Royal Mint made significant changes to the Britannia program. The coins' purity was changed from the traditional 22-karat gold (91.67%) and "Britannia silver" (95.8%) to the finer purity of 99.99% gold and 99.9% silver. The typical mintage limit of 100,000 for silver bullion coins has been lifted. Finally, the bullion versions would now feature the static design of Philip Nathan's Standing Britannia, while the numismatic versions would feature a new design for each year of issue.

In 2013, the Royal Mint released its first £10 silver Britannia, a giant 5-ounce coin. Britannia wears a Corinthian helmet and holds an owl on her knee, she is the symbol of intelligence. She sits on a chair and holds a trident, but there is a small problem. She is dressed old fashioned or partially dressed. This means that one of her breasts is exposed. The Ian Rank-Broadley bust by SM The front features Queen Elizabeth II.
