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.
Over the years, the image of Britannia has altered slightly, with Britain’s maritime dominance being emphasized by trading out her spear for a trident. Britannia is seen as a symbol of British unity, liberty and strength, meaning she resurfaces during particularly challenging times. Just as with Columbia in the U.S. and Marianne in France, the figure of Britannia becomes more visible in times of war or when national pride is booming.
In 1987, Britannia’s image was selected to grace the new Gold bullion coin produced by the Royal Mint, known as the Gold Britannia. These Gold coins have since boomed in popularity both as an investment item and a collector’s piece. Gold Britannias are available in fractional sizes as small as 1/20 oz and as large as 5 oz Gold coins. Over time, both the Gold Britannia and Silver Britannia have experienced changes in design and an increase in metal purity, making them highly desirable in the modern bullion coin market.
