Britannias history in Britain dates back more than 2,000 years to the Roman invasion and occupation of the British Isles around the turn of the first millennium. Her appearance is based on the Roman-Celtic beliefs and is most closely associated with the Roman goddess Minerva, better known to followers of Greek mythology as Athena, the goddess of war and victory.
These 1 Kilo Antique Finish Britannia Silver Statues capture an image of Britannia that is powerful. Her robe and hair flow in the breeze as she stands resolutely watching over the coast of England for outside invaders. Her Corinthian helmet protects her and the trident she wields gives her the power to control the seas. Her left hand rests on a shield that she will use to defend the nation, upon which youll find the Union Jack emblazoned.
Britannia first appeared on Roman coins in Britain during the reign of Hadrian as the Roman Emperor. By the 5th century AD though, she had disappeared from coinage and was somewhat forgotten culturally. By 1672, the reign of King Charles II brought Britannia back into the national conscience as she appeared on British currency from his reign until 2008. As of 2015, she is on a 2 (GBP) coin issued for circulation, and has been on the Gold Britannia bullion coins since 1987.
