Steadfast and confident, Britannia is a symbol of resilience and strength. In 2017, The Royal Mint commemorates the 30th year since Britannia’s bullion design was launched to market. Sculptor Philip Nathan, the designer of the first Britannia bullion in 1987, envisaged her as a classic and evolving icon. In these additions to the bullion collection, she stands firm as a powerful gale whips around her shield, Corinthian helmet and olive branch. The design features a radial sunburst at her back.

In 2017, the Gold Britannia coin celebrates its 30th anniversary. To celebrate this significant milestone, the 2017 Britannia design has been refreshed with a high security radial sunburst background, modernizing this iconic coin.

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.

Beautiful Coin & Amazing Customer Service!

By  Mitchell V.

from Orange County, CA

5.0

This coin is small, but the details on it are outstanding! The coin came packaged neatly sealed along with a little zip lock bag. It is bright, shiny, and very detailed for a 1/10 oz gold coin. Don't hesitate on purchasing this fractional coin. Along with the AGE, the Britannia gold coins will never disappoint in terms of beauty, liquidity, and prestige. APMEX customer service, especially the ladies and gentleman in the back "pulling" coins from the bins to send to us, truly are professionals and are caring individuals. They read every "note" and "memo" along every purchase, and even respond to some of them with hand-written notes. Thank you APMEX, and all your employees, for making my investment experience easy, and I look forward to doing more business in the future. God Bless.
