Britannia is the female representation of Britain and has been the modern face of bullion since 1987. Recognised and trusted around the world, the bullion Britannia coin is sought after by investors and institutions alike.
The Royal Mint is famous for its ability to blend the finest craftsmanship with innovative technology, and in 2021, the Britannia bullion coin showcases this combination to redefine security in the bullion market.
The iconic design has evolved over time. Philip Nathan’s award-winning Britannia is the enduring symbol of a nation, boldly standing beside a shield that bears the Union Flag, a symbol of Britain’s strength, and holds an olive branch representing peace.
Nathan’s Britannia is as strong and beautiful as ever, now enhanced and protected just as the micro-text that borders the design states – DECUS ET TUTAMEN (which translates as 'AN ORNAMENT AND A SAFEGUARD'). The background has surface animation reflecting the movement of the sea. A latent feature in the lower hand segment of the coin switches between a trident and a padlock based on the viewer’s perspective – emphasizing Britannia’s maritime strength and the coin’s secure nature. Finally, details like the Union Flag on Britannia’s shield have been highlighted by tincture lines, making this 999.9 fine gold coin the most visually secure coin in the world. The obverse features the fifth and most recent portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, first introduced in 2015, designed by the Royal Mint's own engraver, Jody Clark. It shows the Queen wearing the King George IV State Diadem and Diamond Jubilee drop pearl earrings.
Britannia is the enduring female symbol of a nation and an internationally recognised and traded bullion coin. Invest in a timeless icon.
