Britannia, the female personification of the British Isles, takes her name from an ancient term for Great Britain and has been a popular figure since the 1st century, when she was first depicted on Roman coinage under the rule of Emperor Hadrian. Illustrated as a goddess, Britannia resembles the Roman figure Boudica. Britannia first appeared on British coins in 1672, when she graced the farthing. She was a firm fixture on coins from this point onwards, appearing on pennies issued under every monarch from 1797 until decimalization, when she was chosen to appear on the 50 pence coin until 2008.

Over the years, the image of Britannia has altered slightly, with her maritime links being emphasized by switching her spear to a trident. Britannia is seen as a symbol of British unity, liberty and strength, meaning she resurfaces during particularly challenging times. Like Columbia in the U.S. and Marianne in France, Britannia becomes more prominent in times of war or when national pride is booming.

In 1987, Britannia’s image graced the new Gold bullion coin minted by the Royal Mint known as the Gold Britannia. These Gold coins have since grown in popularity as an investment and a collector’s piece. Gold Britannias are available in sizes as small as 1/20 oz and as large as 5 oz Gold coins. In 1997, the Royal Mint expanded this design to a Silver bullion coin known as the Silver Britannia. Over time, both the Gold Britannia and Silver Britannia have experienced changes in design and an increase in metal purity, making them major players in the modern coin market.

WOW!

I just received a couple of the Random Year BU Britannias. One was a 2016, but the other was a 1999. WOW was I surprised. APMEX has always exceeded my expectations.

Pleasantly Surprised

By  GC

I ordered several random year Britannias and was pleasantly surprised when they were all dated 2016 and in perfect condition. I have ordered other random year coins occasionally and noticed that they are usually a fairly recent year in excellent condition.

Love the Britannia

By  hcobb

from Alabama

5.0

I've always liked the Britannia design but I've never ordered any until recently. Apmex put the "random year" on an any quantity special so I just had to buy a few. I bought four and they all came in year 2015. Which is great by me because that's the year my daughter was born. Plus, that's after the redesign with the textured background, which to me makes the Coin look even better. Another great product from Apmex. I can't say enough good things about these guys!!!

Received very nice examples....

By  Paradise Ron

Decided after reading reviews to add 6 more Britannia's to the collection. Wasn't worried if all were the same date. Received five 2015's and one 2016 coin. They were in mint condition. All in individual flaps and well packaged for shipment. Will order more when the 2017's come rolling in. Minor variations in the design over the years make these a bit more interesting than Eagles.

Great deal

By  ghost_in_machine

from Somewhere, USA

5.0

I got some of these when they were on sale and the same price per coin, regardless of quantity ordered. Between the sale price and the 10 dollar coupon from Apmex, I barely paid over what was the spot price at that time. I have a very minor complaint, and I am probably in the minority, but I have no use for these Apmex notepads I keep getting with my orders.

disappointed

By  Bill

Received five beautiful coins. APMEX does not send "random" dates. I received 2017 coins. I had the same results for American Eagle coins (all 2016). I recommend them if you don't care about a variety of dates.

Pros

  • Attractive Design

Cons

  • Common (higher mintage)

A beautiful coin to add to the collection

By  Collector of beautiful coins

from North East Wyoming

4.0

The Britannias are a beautiful coin for any collection regardless if you're collecting for the beauty of the coin or to add to a stack. I received my coins and after careful inspection I found no milk spots or damage to the coins. As always APMEX has made buying a pleasure.

Milk spotting and "random" years

By  Ben

from Saint Louis

3.0

One always takes a risk when buying British bullion (milk spotting on half of my coins). Also, the lot was hardly "random" (all 2016). That's ok, though. I love Apmex and this is one of very few orders that didn't meet my expectations. No more Brittanias for me. They need better QC in that mint.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Poor Condition

Good

By  Poiklp

I actually love the coins I got. All in good condition, On time. The only issue I have is the fact that I got the same year on all five coins. This (random) doesn't seem too random to me.
