Today I received ..... this tube of The 2013 S.S. Gairsoppa Silver Britannia Coins were the first in the Royal Mint’s S.S. Gairsoppa Silver Britannia series. Each coin has been carefully struck from actual silver recovered from the infamous S.S. Gairsoppa Shipwreck. The original 1,000 oz silver ingots recovered from the shipwreck have been refined by the Royal Mint and turned into these .999 pure 1/4 oz silver coins. These coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Contains 1/4 oz of .999 pure silver.
Minted by the Royal Mint in Great Britain.
Part of the S.S. Gairsoppa series.
Available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
The image of Britannia has been associated with the British Isles since she was first minted on a coin in the first century AD during the reign of Roman Emperor Hadrian. Today, Britannia continues to be celebrated as a symbol of Britain’s illustrious history and might.
Each 2013 1/4 oz S.S. Gairsoppa Silver Britannia struck from S.S. Gairsoppa silver is in brand new condition and is stamped with its year, 2013. Each coin has been minted with 1/4 oz .999 pure silver. Owning this beautiful coin that is stamped with “S.S. Gairsoppa” along its outer edge is, indeed, like owning a genuine piece of British history. The obverse side of every coin showcases a profile view of Elizabeth II. The reverse, of course, reflects the beautiful image of Britannia as she stands along Britain’s shores with her helmet, trident, and shield.
