The 2023 Britannia 5oz Silver Proof Coin is a remarkable piece of art that captures the essence of Britain's rich cultural heritage. Designed by the artist Jonathan Olliffe, the reverse of the coin features the iconic figure of lady Britannia driving a sea chariot pulled by horses, a powerful symbol of her role as protector of Britain's shores. The 2023 Proof Britannia range is also the first in the series to feature King Charles III on the obverse.
Jonathan Olliffe's design is a contemporary interpretation of the historic medals that depict Britannia driving a sea chariot, with a unique twist that combines aquatic and serpent-inspired features on the traditional horses. This stunning design pays homage to Philip Nathan's iconic 1997 design for the Britannia coin, while also incorporating elements of Olliffe's own artistic style.
Minted to proof standard using 999 fine silver and with a limited production run of only 470. The coin is presented in a beautiful box and comes with a booklet that explores the story of Britannia and the inspiration behind Jonathan Olliffe's design. This makes the 2023 Britannia 5oz Silver Proof Coin not only a beautiful piece of art but also a fascinating insight into Britain's maritime history.
