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.

Milk spotting and "random" years

By  Ben

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

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.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand

I ordered 20 of these coins were really happy with quality and year I received, so I ordered another 20. To my surprised I received gold gilded Britannia, on all of the 20 coins, each separately packed in plastic tube. I love it! This made my weekend! Thank you APMEX! :) Life is good!

I have 4 of these bad boys. I love them and all the other dates I've bought over the last few months. 2003 are beautiful too as are the 2005 and 2001. Heck, all the Britannia coins are a work of art, and when they disappear into smart hands, their value will sky rocket in 10 - 15 years! Oh and for kicks, I bought 4 of the 2012 gilded...wowza!
