Great Britain "Royal Mint 1999 Silver Britannia" Commemorative Coin Cover
LIMITED EDITION - 1000
This superb Commemorative Coin Cover features one of the most famous National symbols Great Britain has - Britannia. This theme is displayed throughout the cover features - the coin, mint and cachet design. She is a female warrior carrying a trident (a three-pronged instrument) and wearing a helmet, personifying Great Britain or the British Empire.
The Royal Mint has struck a superb and highly collectable 1999, 1oz 958.4/1000 Silver Commemorative Coin. Depicting Britannia in a chariot with two horses on the reverse, this £2 Legal Bullion also displays the fourth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley on the obverse.
Similiar to the Royal Mint's 1998 version, the coin has a highly desirable reverse frosted finish. The coin is set within the design of the cachet, whilst the inclusion of a Royal Mail highest value £10 definitive stamp surely makes this a highly prized keepsake. The stamp is postmarked on May 10th 1999 chosen to represent the date by which The Bank of England has made the Silver Bullion legal. With an edition limit of just 1000 and guaranteed by the one day only postmark, this magnificient coin covers depicts a truly memorable Commemoration of one of the great "British" symbols.
