Does anyone collect Britannia silver one ounce coins. Have you heard the news that in November they are going to increase the silver from .958 to .999 they are also going to increase the mintage to unlimited which is a shame because up to now they have had a 100,000 maximum mintage or less. The reverse as I understand it will be a standing Britannia for the for the bullion issues and early in 2013 they will issue a proof Britannia with a different reverse.

I have always liked these coins and have also collected the 1/10th ounce 20p proof Britannia's I like the art work and the lower mintage of the 1998 - 2003 coins. I'm hoping that the price to buy them will not go up to much.

In a way it is good that the mint is increasing its bullion coin mintage. Think of it this way - cap on the mintage leaves a large chunk of investors devoid of acquiring the coin directly from the mint. Since the coins have demand, investors get them from coin shops at outrageous premiums, and where there is BIG money scammers get into market. By the way, thanks for the Royal Mint blog, loved the sight of freshly minted gold coins.
