Beautiful world silver coins include the Silver Brittania from Great Britain and the stunning Silver Philharmonic from Austria. The British Royal Mint first began issuing Silver British Brittanias in 1997. From then until 2012 the coins were struck in .958 silver and, from 2013 to the present, in .999 fine silver. One full troy ounce, these beautiful coins show Jody Clark’s Queen Elizabeth II in profile on the obverse side while the reverse, designed by Philip Nathan, depicts Britannia holding a trident in one hand and a shield emblazoned with the Union Jack in the other.
First produced in 2008 by the Austrian Mint, the Austrian Silver Vienna Philharmonic is probably the most well-known European bullion. Struck from 99.9% fine silver “Silver Phils” weighs a full one troy ounce. These coins, sought by both collectors and investors alike, are some of the most beautiful made anywhere in the world. Designed by Thomas Pesendorfer, the obverse side shows the Great Organ from the Musikverein Golden Hall and on the reverse side, a collection of the philharmonic’s musical instruments.
These coins are truly beautiful to behold! Our 2016 Brilliant Uncirculated 1 Oz Silver British Brittania and the Austrian Silver Philharmonic would make an excellent addition to any precious metals portfolio and are also eligible for storage in your precious metals IRA.
