Banned Silver Coin 🚷

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I wondered how many people knew this story - I only heard about it a few weeks ago & found it very interesting so thought I would share it on here. 

On 18th July 2017, The Pobjoy Mint announced that a trademark infringement necessitated the firm to remove the word BRITANNIA from the Reverse Proof 2017 .999 fine silver 1-ounce bullion coins minted for the Falkland Islands.

The change during production means that a total of 7,329 coins have been issued with the inscription, creating a relatively low-mintage version of the coin.

“We will be restarting production of these coins without the inscription for the remaining 42,671 of the issue limit,” according to a statement from the Pobjoy Mint.

Pobjoy Mint “was not aware” that Britannia is trademarked on coin, according to the firm. It was later confirmed that the trademark resides with the Royal Mint, based on a search with the United Kingdom’s Intellectual Property Office.
