Steadfast and confident, Britannia is a symbol of resilience and strength. Sculptor Philip Nathan, the designer of the first Britannia bullion in 1987, envisaged her as a classic and evolving icon. In these additions to the bullion collection, she stands firm as a powerful gale whips around her shield, Corinthian helmet, and olive branch. This design features a radial sunburst at her back.
Gold Britannia Coins from the Royal Mint
The Gold Britannia coin serves as a female representation of Great Britain and is the most prominent example of bullion from the U.K. In 1987, as global demand for bullion coins grew, The Royal Mint began producing Britannia coins. The image of the iconic Britannia was created by Philip Nathan, drawing heavily on her associations with water and the ocean surrounding the country. Nathan viewed Britannia as an evolving icon, both classic and modern. Dressed in a traditional gown blowing in the wind, the waves at her feet epitomize the island’s marine influences. This British bullion coin is recognized the world over and the portrait of Britannia only reinforces the strength that many collectors feel for these coins. British Gold bullion coins play a significant role in the global coin market. These Gold Britannias are struck in 1 oz sizes, with a face value of £100. The Royal Mint makes other denominations, but none are as famous as the 1 oz Gold coin. Before 1990, Britannias from the U.K. were made with an alloy comprised of both Gold and Copper. The mint then began to use a Silver alloy for the coins and finally moved to .9999 fine Gold in 2013.
Graceful Britannia Gold Coins from the United Kingdom
The graceful yet powerful design of Gold Britannia coins from The Royal Mint has found a place of appeal with both collectors and investors. On the obverse, a representation of Queen Elizabeth II appears. The 2019 Britannias feature what is called the Fifth Portrait of Her Majesty, showing a more mature likeness that was created in the late 1990s. Named after an older version of the country’s name, Britannia is a mythical woman created as a representation of the isle of Great Britain. She is featured on the reverse of these Gold coins. Most illustrations of Britannia show her as a goddess, modeled after another mythical woman, Boudica.
These exquisite 2019 Gold Britannia coins are part of a history that dates back more than 6,000 years, with evidence of Gold coins being traded in Europe as far back as 4000 B.C.
