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.

SHALLOW RELIEF RUINS VISUAL APPEAL

By  Steve

from Orange County, CA

1.0

When I received this coin I was totally unsatisfied because of the shallow relief. This made the coin appear as a weak strike or an overly circulated and overly worn specimen. I exchanged it for a 2008 1 oz. gold Britannia and was totally satisfied with it. It has a decent relief. If the 2013 had the same relief as the 2008, it would be a beautiful coin. Instead, as I mentioned above, it looks like its overly worn or a weak strike.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)

I love it

By  Jamie E.

from Hershey PA

5.0

I purchased 8 gold coins and found this coin to be my favorite. First year for .9999 fine gold is nice but the luster & design is what won me over. This coin is larger than the typical 1oz coin and the reeds on the coin are sparkly with a fantistic finish. if you buy the coin you will agree. I think it's fantastic. Will purchase 4 more and grab the new 1/10 oz too.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Mint Condition
  • Collectible (lower mintage)

It appeared to have a nice design, which it does, but the relief is so shallow that it makes the beautiful design insignificant.

Great design.

Pros

  • Attractive Design

eh, it's ok but only because it's unique

By  kaya

Had I seen this in person I would not have purchased it. There is almost no relief. It looks more like a piece of glossy jewelry, like it was poured into a mold rather than struck on a die. If you can get a good over-spot price buy it because it's unique, otherwise I'd pass.

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)

Cons

  • Unattractive Design
  • No Relief
