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.
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.
Britannia, the personification of Great Britain's power and naval supremacy, first appeared on British coinage in 1672.

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.
