Britannia, the female personification of Britain, has a long history dating back to Roman times. The name Britannia derives from the Latin word “Britannia,” which refers to the island of Great Britain. She is often depicted as a strong and noble woman, wearing a Corinthian helmet and holding a trident and shield.
British Gold Britannia Coins originally featured 22-karat gold with 91.67% gold content by weight. Since 2013, however, the coins have been issued by the Royal Mint with 24-karat gold content, or .9999 purity. Please keep in mind that dates in this tube from 1987 to 2012 feature 22-karat gold, while all coins from 2013 onward have 24-karat gold.
In the obverse design of each 1 oz British Gold Britannia, you will find a depiction of a British monarch. Most coins available in this series feature Her Late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. The late Queen featured on all coins from 1987 to early 2023, while her son and successor, King Charles III, features on the coins from 2023 onward.
The reverse side of British Gold Britannia Coin features the image of Britannia. Designed in 1987 by Philip Nathan, Britannia is intended to symbolize the naval power and imperial dominance of Britain. Britannia represents the nation’s sovereignty, liberty, and maritime strength.
