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.

Why invest in these 2015 Gold coins?

Diversify your portfolio with Britannia Gold coins, and acquire .9999 fine Gold bullion that is backed by the British government. Gold has been considered a sign of wealth for thousands of years, and no matter what economic crises has occurred, Gold has always had intrinsic value. Many investors consider Gold coins a safe haven for investments because historically the price of Gold is typically more stable over time than stocks and bonds and other investments. These coins can also be used for Precious Metals IRAs because they meet the strict requirements of the Internal Revenue Service.

How are Gold coins different from Gold rounds?

Unlike Gold rounds, Gold coins are sovereign Gold bullion coins that actually have a face value. The true value of the these coins, though, is in their one troy ounce of .9999 fine Gold. While Gold coins can also have numismatic, or collector, value causing them to be priced much higher over the Gold spot price, Gold rounds are usually only for investment causing their price to be closer to the Gold spot price. Today, most Gold coins are also close to spot price because they are produced primarily for investors. Britannia Gold coins are popular among both investors and collectors, along with other sovereign Gold coins such as Canadian Maple Leafs and American Gold Eagles.

Nice coin, but...

By  SR

from Newark, DE

4.0

This is a nice coin, however, I do agree with some of the other comments about other years of the coin that say the relief is a little lacking. The details are very easy to make out in the image of the coin, but the actual coin is a little harder to see. The reverse is nice, but the obverse seems like it needs to be struck a little deeper. Despite this one issue, it is overall a nice coin from a well-known and respected mint.

Pros

  • Mint Condition
  • Known Brand
  • Ease of Liquidity
  • Value (low premium)
  • Guaranteed

Gold has been used for trading and artifacts for thousands of years.

Buy Gold coins, and you join the countless individuals over the past 6,000 years who consider Gold a beautiful and valuable commodity. Though 1 oz Gold bullion did not exist in 4000 B.C., evidence of Gold being used to create decorative artifacts was found in the area known today as Eastern Europe. While Gold coins are made of .9999 fine Gold today, the oldest coin discovered was made of electrum, a naturally occurring Gold and Silver alloy. Since ancient times, the uses for Gold have expanded far beyond Gold bullion and artifacts to include everything from manufacturing medical devices to electronics.
