Design of the Gold Britannia Coin
The front of each Britannia coin, like all official coinage, features an image of Queen Elizabeth II on the front, with the words 'Elizabeth II' on the front. The coin's face value of £100 GBP is also on the front of the coin.
The reverse side of the coin features Lady Britannia walking. She carries a trident in her right hand. In her left hand are both an olive branch and a shield, which features the Union Jack design on it. The sun rises behind her. Lady Britannia first appeared on coinage when the United Kingdom was part of the Roman Empire, around 30 AD. At that time the British Isles were called 'Britannia' by the Romans. Lady Britannia has since appeared on UK coinage several times since then. The British Britannia gold coin is the official gold coin of the government of the UK, and the only official one ounce gold coin.
Britain's Official Gold Coin
The gold Britannia coin was first launched in 1987 by the Royal Mint. Buying and storing gold Sovereign coin has always been popular in the UK, and around territories that belonged to the British Empire, including India, Australian and Canada, where British Sovereigns were also manufactured and used to trade (due to their gold content). However, in the 1980s, it became fashionable worldwide to buy and invest in gold coins. This trend started with the launch of the Krugerrand, followed by the Maple Leaf. Britain introducted the Britannia, which was only available in gold at that time. The gold Britannia was the only one ounce gold coin to be produced by the UK government.
Due to the popularity of the gold Britannia, the UK launched the Britannia series in silver in 1997, and in platinum in 2017.
Gold Britannia coins are available in one ounce and fractional ounce sizes.
