#Gold #silver #preciousmetals I bought a 1 KILO Silver Britannia From The Royal Mint! In this video I talk about the 1 KILO silver Coin that I recently bought. I talk about the pros and cons of buying a bar of silver like this and certainly one in the Kilo silver coin size. If you are a silver stacker or silver investor and you are buying silver coins or silver bars then this is the video for you. Silver is real money and has been used as real money for thousands of years. Generic silver is a specific type of silver that is usually in the form of silver bars or silver rounds. Silver coins are not included in the generic silver category. Not only do we define generic silver but we also talk about the merits of stacking it. Silver and gold are wealth protection and I believe everyone should be stacking them. Silver coins are good but silver bars have some magic to them and no more so than a Kilo Silver Coin. Key Features Each Britannia 2023 bullion coin featuring the fifth and final effigy of Queen Elizabeth II has a limited production run. A Britannia coin featuring King Charles III’s first effigy will be released in the new year. The largest coin in this range Struck in one kilo of 999 fine silver for the first time Enhanced with four advanced security features A latent image changes from a padlock to Britannia’s famous trident Surface animation brings the background of waves to life The micro-text provides both decoration and protection Britannia’s shield bears the Union flag, which is accented with tincture lines Encapsulated in a single coin capsule Britannia has been cast as the female personification of Britain for centuries, evolving through the ages to capture the spirit of a nation and its people. First appearing on the coins of the Roman Emperor Hadrian, Britannia has been a continuous presence on British coins since 1672. Today, this icon appears on our flagship Britannia bullion coin. Renowned for its beauty and reliability, this incarnation of Britannia was created by sculptor Philip Nathan in 1987. He presented the ‘queen of the seas’ with carefully chosen symbols of Britain’s identity – a shield for protection, an olive branch for peace and a trident for her maritime links. The award-winning design has become so highly regarded that only The Royal Mint is able to strike genuine Britannia coins featuring Philip Nathan’s interpretation. This modern classic has been struck on the 2023 bullion coin, which contains one kilo of 999 fine silver and depicts Britannia standing boldly amongst the waves. This one kilo silver coin includes four additional security features, as does the one ounce fine silver and the one ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce fine gold editions of the coin.

Imagine if that bad boy was slabbed lol
I have many of them
I received this in the US in 6 days from ordering direct from the Royal Mint. Amazingly fast! And beautiful.
I bought the QB Completer kilo believing I wouldn’t get a 10oz version, then the RM did issue a 10oz and bought 3 of them
I can live with my misunderstanding but I’m not about to repeat it.
Seeing the 2 kgs side by side, I prefer the britannia
And if you got a commemorative coin in the 1 kilo , how much are they
I personally wish I could find the same coins in platinum
I love me some kilo coins, however the Britannia is not the best choice really. It’s not something with a yearly changing motif (so you don’t have collectors just missing that one coin to complete a collection), the minting quality is rather average, the premium you pay right from the dealer was rather high. I’d much rather recommend the Perth Kookaburra or Lunar kilos.
However I like the design of the current Britannia coins the most and who knows, these might turn out to be very limited mintage with the queen effigy and all. You’re probably not gonna get your premium back when eventually selling it, but having that iconic coin to look at without a magnifying glass is good.
Also: Thanks for showing it without the capsule in all its glory.
i just got mine today, i love it, its just amazing
im not big on spending that much on silver but it is a nice coin it has about the same premium as a silver eagle but looks way better
Beautiful coin. I don’t know if I’ll ever get one but I’ve had my eye on the Kookaburra from Australia. But what a great piece.
That’s all I need! A temptation. Ugh. 🤣
Stupid buy. I’d only buy a kg in bar form not coin. But at the same time I’m a stacker not a collector
I just ordered one today!
I like my premium rounds and bars.. but this is way too high of a premium. It’s gorgeous , both of your coins
