The 2017 Gold and Silver Britannia designs feature a new radiating pattern added behind Britannia. Not only does this new feature add sophistication but is also an anti-counterfeiting security.
The Britannia’s attractive design was created to appeal to both collectors and investors alike. The obverse of the Gold Britannia bears a depiction of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Each 2017 Gold Britannia is made from .9999 fine Gold, and each 2017 Silver Britannia is made of .999 fine Silver.
The reverse pays tribute to the Britannia image that first appeared on coins produced under the rule of the Roman Emperor Hadrian. An ancient term for Great Britain, Britannia began to personify the island of Great Britain in the first-century Roman world. Illustrated as a goddess, Britannia resembles the Roman figure Boudica. Britannia first appeared on British coins in 1672, when she graced the farthing. The Gold and Silver Britannias are the first coins since the days of the Romans to feature the Britannia image. The Britannia coins feature different variations of the Britannia design, including a Standing Britannia, a Seated Britannia and others.
