The image of Britannia, the renowned Goddess and Guardian of Britain, is featured on the reverse. She is seen staring at something across the sea as she struggles against a strong gale. A trident and a shield in her hands are symbols of her readiness to protect the great nation of Britain from harm; she is poised, ready to attack if threatened.
The inscriptions on this side refer to the coin’s name, weight, purity, and metal content. They read: “BRITANNIA,” “1 OZ,” “‘999 ’FINE’ SILVER’.”
The obverse design stamps the nation’s Monarch’s depiction. Until the middle of 2023, the image depicted was former Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy created by Jody Clark. However, due to Her Majesty’s passing in 2022, Royal Mint introduced the first portrait of King Charles II as the new obverse design in the second half of 2023 to welcome His Majesty.
Along with the Monarch’s name, the engravings on this side refer to the coin’s face value and the Latin initials to “By the Grace of God, Queen/King,” according to the effigy stamped.
