The Gold Britannia Coins from the Royal Mint of England debuted in 1987. That year saw the debut of 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and these 1/10 oz coins. From 1987 to 2012, the coins featured 22-karat gold content and offered only these four weights. In 2013, the Royal Mint boosted the gold content to 24-karat gold and introduced 1/20 oz and 5 oz coins to the series.
Britannias image on the reverse of the coins has remained steadfast since the 1987 debut of the coins. Philip Nathans design of Britannia won a Royal Mint-sponsored art contest to select a new Britannia image for the launch of the gold bullion series. Nathan created a strong, defiant image of Britannia for the series.
The obverse of 2020 1/10 oz British Gold Britannia Coins includes the latest fifth-generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed in July 2015 by Jody Clark, the right-profile bust of the Queen includes the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head with inscriptions of her name and the face value included on this side. As of 2018, the background field on the obverse is dominated by a guilloche element.
On the reverse side of 2020 British Gold Britannia Coins is the female personification of Britain and the British people. Her figure stands resolute on the shores of Britain weathering the storm as she defends the Isles from outside threats. She holds a shield with her left hand that is emblazoned with the Union Jack and clutches a trident in her right hand. For protection, she wears a Corinthian battle helmet. The background field on this side of the coin has a radiating effect with a slice of the sun visible behind her figure at the center.
