About Gold British Britannia Coins

The British Britannia gold coin stands out on the global market for many reasons. The gold Britannia, like the rest of the Britannia series, is renowned for its quality, value, and of course, its pristine and detailed appearance. It is truly a coin that belongs in every investor’s portfolio.

The front of each coin features Queen Elizabeth II in a right-facing portrait. Encircling her portrait are her name 'Elizabeth II', and the coin's legal tender value of £100. The reverse side of the Britannia gold coin features a detailed image of Lady Britannia herself; a symbol of Great Britain that was first introduced during the Roman Empire. She is clad in elegant robes with traditional armor pieces and wields a large trident and a shield bearing the Union Flag as she stands above the rippling waves of the English Channel. 

Modern coins also feature some refined security features. Most notably, the trident wielded by Britannia on the obverse changes to a padlock at certain angles of viewing, the Union Flag on her shield contains tincture lines, the waves are animated, and the micro-text is extremely difficult to replicate. All of this makes for a coin that is near counterfeit-proof.

While these coins are available in sveral sizes, the 1-ounce size is the most popular

The History of British Britannia Coins

Britannia was first invented as a symbol of Britain in AD 119, and she was featured on all of Hadrian’s coins during that era. The depiction would eventually fall into obscurity, but in 1672 Charles II chose to depict her on the coinage produced during his reign. This revived Britannia’s status as a symbol of Britain, and every monarch since Charles II has utilized the figure on their coinage.

In 1987, the modern depiction of Britannia was created by Philip Nathan under the commission of Queen Elizabeth II. The coin artist chose to depict Britannia in as traditional a manner as possible, and while the Royal Mint has added some high-tech features to gold Britannia coins since the depiction was originally created, the mint still uses Nathan's artistic depiction on both bars and coins in various metals to this day.
