For the coins of 2008, a new standing portrait of Britannia has been created for the reverse design and is the work of John Bergdahl. He wanted to convey a sense of Britannia being at one with the wind and sea and to make her seem elemental. John also wanted to incorporate traditional motifs, like the lighthouse, which have long been associated with Britannia in coin designs. Britannia here is shown to be maiden-like and innocent while at the same time being a warrior princess. The obverse bears the portrait of Her Majesty The Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS.

The 2008 UK Britannia 1oz Silver Coin was struck by the British Royal Mint in the year 2008 and belongs to the Britannia series of silver bullion coins. Each .958 fine silver coin contains 1 troy ounce (31.1035 grams) of silver and is legal tender with a face value of £2.

While the one ounce coins are generally the most popular amongst bullion investors, the British 2008 Britannia Silver coin also comes in fractional ounce sizes of half, quarter and one-tenth oz.
